Um I am sorry if this a dumb question but a custom fan profile? Would this be done through a Windows program or through the software that come with the card?

Software through Nvidia just like Catalyst via AMD.

I might be wrong but I think you need to use MSI Afterburner, EVGA Precision, Zotac Firestorm etc.. to set a custom profile. I think the nvidia control panel just lets you set it at a constant speed.

That's it, I've used MSI Afterburner and it's fairly comprehensive.

Oh I see. I have friends that use MSI Afterburner but I never realized you could use it to control the GPU fan speed. Are there other programs out there or is MSI Afterburner just the main "go to" program for this.
