Cpu fans depend heavily on the manufacturer's design, and you can sometimes 
control the temperature it starts to blow through acpi.  Have a look at the 
page about linux on my laptop (mine's a dothan processor) here:

Note that the speedstep-centrino module should be loaded by hotplug/udev; 
adding that line to /etc/modules is the way to force the system to load the 
centrino speedstep support module.

In my oppinion that's not relevant, unless you see the same behaviour in 

Good luck  ;)
