how to increase fan speeds

Hi,

I have installed a compute accelerator PCIe x16 card, 300Watt, power, (nvidia K80).

I want to ensure that the cards is cooled properly by confiming fan speed increase in response to compute card usage. Currently the card runs a job and reaches ~66C but the system fans remain at normal speed, 4 - 5k rpms, system air flow of 40CFM, intake air temp of 18C.

Will the default fan speeds be increased if I edit a bios setting? How does the altitude setting affect the air flow? Will it increase?

-- The server is an: Intel S2600GZ Version: R2208GZ4GC

I found this link which describes the opposite of what I need to do. Is there a method to increase fan speed?
