What is your mother board?
For example for Asus mbs, there are some kits to do that, some dll would help you.
And about increasing fan speed, you can only di this, if both your mb and fan support this functionality.

Hi davinder101,
    If your hardware is ACPI compatible (most PC boards are). You need to program ACPI. But there are two difficulties.

1) Version 3.0 spec is 618 pages and will take a considerable time to study and write a program.
2) You will need to access the hardware directly. You migtht need to write kernel module.
