In bios, look for Dynamic fan control and select, turn off smartfan, set manual fan speed to 100% and don't forget to save the settings. Here's a link I found and some extra pages when you get there:

Should give you some more insight in detailed pics.

The B3 revision has a max thermal temp of 61c where as the G0 has a max thermal temp of 71c. So your fine

You should however look into aftermarket cooling.... You already up towards the higher end of the thermal compacity and your only at 2.8GHz. I would definately concider some cooling options, and a better thermal paste.
