Default Video card with noisy fan

So I got a second hand Radeon 6970 video card. The fan is very noisy when the computer is first turned on, but it runs whisper quiet in the bios. It only gets noisy again just before the window manager starts up and continues making a lot of noise from then on.

I tried running ampd -L and it made no difference.

When I use sysctl hw.sensors, all it shows is the CPU:
hw.sensors.cpu0.temp0=27.00 degC

Does this mean ampd can't see the video card and I need to install something for ampd to see and control its fan? Or is the card a dud? The card works fine otherwise. It runs that game I mentioned very fast.
