Default CPU Fan running at max

I got a new motherboard a while ago and installed some old parts from my HP computer. Now at boot up the fan is running at max speed and i always have to wait until XP is done loading and reduce fan with SpeedFan. I was told to use CoolnQuiet software but that's only for AMD processors. Is there anything i can do to fix this problem?

You also might try looking in the BIOS. check that you havent manually overridden the settings. If you dont know what to do there, just set them to auto
