Default 177.70 (BETA) and GT9800 - fan nearly stops in 3d mode

hi all,

i have a new gainward 9800gt an using it with the 177.70 (BETA) drivers on ubuntu 64bit.
when Gnome starts the fan is going down to about 50%. so far so good, but if i start a game it still runs at about 50% for about 1 minute, then its going down to 20 or 10% and the card is getting hot and hotter. the fan doesn't going up again. nvidia-settings shows a temperature of 90c and rising. i switched my box off then
compiz runs fine but regardless of which game i start the fan goes down after short time.

anyone has a idea how to fix that?
