Not sure why you would want it at a constant 85%?
There is programs like Nvidia System tools that will throttle the fan based on the temperature.
This is one.
I use MSI Afterburner
and set up a cooling profile. If you click the settings button, then fan, you can manually adjust at what temperatures the fan speed ramps up.
For instance, with my 4870's I have them set so anything below 60C the fan will run @ 30%. Between 60 and 67C, it'll ramp up mildly to 54%, but once it hits 68C it'll ramp up more aggressively eventually getting to 100% fan speed by 74C. With this setup my temps never exceed 72C even with both GPUs' at 100% load.
It'll look something like this:

I hope I didn't really damage it by overheating it once like that...
Does MSI afterburner have to be on for the profile to work? I had it set so it uses the profile when windows boots up.
Soemtimes MSI afterburner will load up completely before the driver is done loading up. All you have to do at that point is click on the Afterburner icon in the taskbar, once it pops up, click on the "User define" button twice. (Once turns it off, the secodn time turns it back on).Edited by BlackOmega - 10/22/11 at 9:39am
