SpeedFan works well as software-derived fan control, but it's not as user-friendly as it could be. It needs configuration by the user.

It also features a voltage and temperature monitor, but be advised that its properties as a temperature monitor are not really tailored for use with AMD multi-cores. If you use SpeedFan, ignore its temperature readings section.

Hope this helps!

you could go into the BIOS and look up fan control and do it from there, because even if you have a program that can change the fan speed, the BIOS would probably override it.

speedfan is not easy to setup but I got it running, just that I need something so it can autostart with windows... Ill figure it out tomorrow hopefully, The cpu was around 60c earlier and it just scared the fudge out of me, so I got speedfan and now its at 33c and even with 3dmark running it doesn't go above 40c.
