I saw there was a new bios for the 8800gt oc that fixed the fan control problem. It was also mentioned that the oc2 didn't apply as it didn't have such a problem, yet unless I am using rivatuner, the fan speed doesn't change. Is there an updated bios for my card?

On the BFG 8800GT OC, the original BIOS had the fan speed locked at 29% unless the temp got over 80 C. The new BIOS update ramps up the fan speed to 49% and reportedly cuts roughly 10 degrees off the average operating temperature. The OC2 supposedly doesn't have this problem, although I can say that the OC2 does ramp up the fan speed considerably and cut it's processing power if it gets above 80 C. According to the BFG website there is no BIOS update for the OC2, only the OC.
