I'm annoyed I can't lower the fan to below 40% when idle, it seems their is a lock on it with my current driver/bios/OC utility?

How can I bypass this? I don't want 1320 RPM during idle and am fine with it idling at something like 43-50~ C

I have exactly the same. And im afraid you cannot turn it down. We will just have to wait for an updated bios and hopefully they will have sorted it.

Can someone explain to me why someone would want to turn fanspeed to below 40% if it's quiet? Extend the life of the fan while shorten the life of the card?

Sealed in my Sarcophagus.
Mines at 40% and its totally silent, unless maybe if you get on your knees and stick your heard right next to it.

idles at 35 degrees.

Sounds like you have faulty fans or you need better case ventilation to get your idle temps lower?
