    I really like the custom fan profiles option in Afterburner, but I've noticed that even if you have it set to apply settings at login, the custom fan profile doesn't actually work unless Afterburner is running. Is it possible to have that fan profile applied without Afterburner running?

    No, because the fan profile is tied to the BIOS on the card. You need the software running to override those settings.
