I know the default is that the GPU fan turns off when not in-game. Is it normal to turn on the GPU using an afterburner even when I'm not playing will it show any effect?

You should not bother about GPU fan in decent video cards. In all cards with regulated fan speed (fans with 3-4 pin connectors) fan is turned off when GPU is cold enough. It save fan motor/bearing life and make less noise. Start to worry only if GPU temperature goes over 60C and fan still does not rotate.
