There are six points on the graph. I used to match temp to % having it 5% extra for every 10C but felt like it was just a tad low as temps got higher.

I used to have:
40C - 45%
50C - 55%
60C - 65%
70C - 75%
80C - 85%
90C - 95%

Starting at 40C with 45% fan and every 10C added an extra 1% seemed to make more sense.

As heat ramps up the fan should to and if your temps are getting at the 80C-90C I felt the fans had to work harder to keep the temp more at bay. By 90C you really want a full 100% on that card. With six points on the graph I would reach that.

40C - 5 pts increase
50C - 6 pts increase
60C - 7 pts increase
70C - 8 pts increase
80C - 9 pts increase
90C - 10 pts increase

For me the 90C is the worry point and fans should be at 100% by then. I found by adding 1% to each 10C got me to 100% fan at 90C a much better fan graph solution and on the curve as opposed to a step up scale.

40C-45%
50C-56%
60C-67%
70C-78%
80C-89%
90C-100%

In my most hard core gaming for hours on Crysis maxed to AA x16, full screen, full inertia, at my 1920x1200 resolution I never hit over 81C with fans at 90% thus far. Make sense?

Ah ok I see how now. That does make a lot of sense actually.
