the fan has to be plugged in to the mobo, via the little 3 pin plug, in prder to allow for altering the fan speed, then try it on speed fan or something

It should be in your BIOS under "PC Health Status".

Intel Q9400 | Gigabyte EP45-UD3P | G.Skill 2x2GB DDR2 1000 | XFX HD5870

Not all motherboards are designed that way, read the motherboard manual, and reviews online.... It also can be that you need to update your bios.
