Yes that is correct. When installing the nividia glx-new drivers, and after
restarting the machine the GPU fan is set to run a 100%. Currently the only
way to adjust this is through the use of nvclock.

This is an acknowledged bug in the proprietary NVIDIA driver version 169.07.


Since the code is closed, we can only wait for NVIDIA to fix it.

  * nvidia: Update to 169.09
    - Fixed a problem causing the fan on some GPUs to always run
      at full speed. (LP: #184914)
    - Fixed a bug that caused the X driver to crash if the X.Org
      GLX extension module was loaded intead of NVIDIA's.
    - Improved the X driver's awareness of the current notebook
      docking status.
    - Fixed brightness control on HP Compaq notebooks.
    - Fixed a bug in the Linux/i2c algorithm driver implementation
      that prevented core transfer types from succeeding.
  * fglrx: Update to 8-01 (LP: #177829, #148345)
    - Corruption will no longer be noticed in the lower right corner
      of the display or on the mouse pointer after the system is
      running for a long period of time. (LP: #106148)
    - Connecting a display device that supports 1680x1050 to a system
      running Linux will no longer result in a maximum display resolution
      of 1280x1024 only being available.
    - Custom mode lines in xorg.conf will no longer be ignored by the
      fglrx driver.
    - Suspending to RAM or DISK on kernel version 2.6.23 or later no
      longer fails. (LP: #121653)
  * nvidia/nvidia-glx-config: Remove, not needed anymore and only confuses
    people and breaks keyboard setups (LP: #152486)
  * control.stub.in: Add fglrx-amdcccle dummy package for easy transition
    from packages generated by the ATI installer.
  * fglrx-control:
    - Remove fireglcontrol*.desktop, and install amdcccle*.desktop from
      the extracted installer instead.
    - Install amdcccle in this package, not the driver.
    - Conflicts/Replaces xorg-driver-fglrx <= $previousversion.
  * fglrx.xsession: Obsolete by now, removed.
  * Drop obsolete build-dependencies: libxxf86misc-dev, libxtst-dev,
