Hi TJC
Best to control the CPU fan speed through BIOS, and setting it to certain %ages for certain temps. I know you can do this as you have the same mobo as me :P What heatsink did you get btw?

And software-wise you can always use SpeedFan, IIRC.

Edit: Woot, 1800 posts.

yes there is softare for that, but most of it is motherboard specfic. so you will have to see if your mobo maker has any kind of software that does that. gigabyte has some thing called Easy tune 6 that controls fan speed.
