Default Speeding up GFX fan...?

I need a way to crank up the fan on my GFX card that does not involve software. I have tried RivaTuner and ATITool, but COD4 does not lpay nice with them (even just tuning fan speed).

I am posting this blind in that I haven't popped my case to look at what I could do with it. I plan on getting a Zalman cooler for it (as soon as I get the dough), but need a stopgap for now. The fan running at 31% doen't keep it cool enough, especially when Folding.

External fan controller, connect the fan to it and just leave the header on the card empty.
