I'm trying to set up the fans on the cards so they won't overheat. How do I do that?

*What* cards?
If GPU cards - wrong section. You posted in the bitcoin area and should be in the altcoin area.
If ASIC-based miner cards for bitcoin - what kind?
No matter which it is considering there are bajillions of variations ya really need to at least give a make & model number...  Roll Eyes

I'm currently mining with the Nicehash miner, using 2x R7 260x OC.
I'm using MSI Afterburner to OC my cards and change any settings in power and so on.I have auto-fan configuration disabled and set to 100%. Saw an increase of 4-5C.

Use MSI Afterburner for fan control. Also you can setup some box fans or tower fans to get more ventilation into your mining rigs. Also placing them somewhere cool like your basement if you have one will help.

You need to keep good airflow around the cards. The more airflow, the better. I place a box fan directly in front of the cards so that it pushes the hot air from the the rig away from the cards and also blows air through the cards. This lowers the temps so you don't need to run the fans on the card too high. If you have 1-2 rigs that may be enough depending on the size of the room and if you have good ventilation. Any more than that, you likely need to look for a way to exhaust the hot air away so that it can be replaced with cooler air and you're not just circulating the same hot air around the cards. Angry Chicken on Youtube posted a video with a creative solution he's going to try using a well ventilated box.

yes, the most important thing is cool and fresh air.
