I just set this up on my machine and it works wonderfully.  Just install
lm-sensors, set up the details for your motherboard using the
'sensors-detect' script, then run 'pwmconfig' to assign each fan hookup on
your motherboard to a thermistor temperature sensor output.  You can define
all the values for increasing the fan speed in increments if you want.

My machine is whisper quiet with this enabled... much louder when I disable
it and it sets all the fans to default top-speed.
