    Try this.

    Smart Fan Options - Disabled

    CPU Fan Mode - this depends on fan type.
    For a retail 4 pin Intel fan, it should be PWM.
    For an aftermarket 3 pin fan, it should be VOLTAGE mode.

    Then, try Speedfan from almico.com .

    http://www.almico.com/sfdownload.php

    http://www.almico.com/speedfan439.exe (the speedfan download)

    You can control the fans with Speedfan. Disabling the control
    in the BIOS, means less chance for interference. It might in fact
    work, that leaving it enabled in the BIOS, still allows Speedfan
    to override it. But if you have problems, you can disable
    the setting in the BIOS, to give Speedfan more of a chance to
    adjust it.

    Best guess,
    Paul
