PNY GTX 260 fan always at 40%

Hi all
About an hour ago i noticed that my gtx 260s fan is allways set at 40% and never moves and when i play some games the temps got up to 75 degrees.
Could someone please help me to be able to adjust the fan speed so the temps come down a bit.

Hi Ashley,

Here is a post from Toms Hardware exactly like yours. The suggestion is to try MSI Afterburner.
