chassis fan at max speed, no speed control?


Hello all,

I got a new computer and got it running Slackware64-current. It's motherboard is an ASUS M4A88TD-M and it's processor is an AMD Phenom II x4 965. I decided to get some chassis fans to improve it's thermal performance. But, since I started the computer after installing the new fan (only one of the 3 I got) the fan's speed is at max and it's very noisy.

I'd like Slackware to control it's speed according to temperatures from lm-sensors. Output of # sensors-detect can be found here.

Kernel is stock -current 2.6.33.4. Output of # lspci is here.
Code:
gtl@coruscant:~$ sensors
atk0110-acpi-0
Adapter: ACPI interface
Vcore Voltage:     +1.31 V  (min =  +0.85 V, max =  +1.60 V)
 +3.3 Voltage:     +3.34 V  (min =  +2.97 V, max =  +3.63 V)
 +5 Voltage:       +5.08 V  (min =  +4.50 V, max =  +5.50 V)
 +12 Voltage:     +12.03 V  (min = +10.20 V, max = +13.80 V)
CPU FAN Speed:    2170 RPM  (min =  600 RPM)
CHASSIS FAN Speed:3409 RPM  (min =  600 RPM)
CPU Temperature:   +40.0C  (high = +60.0C, crit = +95.0C)  
MB Temperature:    +32.0C  (high = +45.0C, crit = +75.0C)  

k10temp-pci-00c3
Adapter: PCI adapter
temp1:        +0.0C  (high = +70.0C, crit = +99.5C)
How can this be solved?
Thanks in advance,
gtludwig

Why not let the BIOS handle the fans? Doesn't the motherboard support "quiet & cool"?

"Quiet & Cool" support on BIOS is enabled. Switched back to the other slower fan so I can work on this computer. Dang! Now I have to to get a multi fan controller hardware... hehe!
