Mad cooler

Hello. I have just installed FC4 and confronted with a problem. When processor's loading is grow up the cooler start increasing and decreasing its speed very sharply and frequently (one start-stop per second). In other words, cooler's speed is too inconstant. Of course, cooler cannot chill processor properly that way and it's temperature is growing.
How this problem can be solved? Thanks.

I discovered that the source of the problem is module named it87. After loading it this strange thing occurs. But without this module I cannot to measure (and control) speed of the fan.
And I would like to control the speed of the fan because it is too noisy even when the processor is idle.
Maybe somebody knows...
