Have you tried a software controlled solution like Lm-sensors (
http://www.lm-sensors.org/)? I haven't used it personally but I have heard
of others using it to control the fans based on the temperature
measurements. I believe there is a gui called ksensors for kde. Maybe
somebody else on the list has had success with that and could give you some
more first hand feedback than I can.
