Default Controlling Northbridge fan on K8N Neo4-F

My northbridge fan is driving me insane. It spins at about 5k, and makes a serious humming noise that I *HATE*.

In CoreCenter (MSI's fan controller utility) it reports my fan is at 5kRPM, sometimes it drops to 2.5k and thats when I can't hear the fan anymore.

Any ideas how I can reduce fan speed?

I was looking into replacing the northbridge with a passive Zalman NB cooler, but unfortunately my graphics card is right ontop of the northbridge cooler

Any ideas? I can't take this humming!!
