If you get a high quality fan controller you can set temperature threshholds.

MANY modern motherboards incorporate CPU fan control in their BIOS.

Look in the BIOS at the power and/or environmental controls -- you most likely have a system that supports thermal monitoring and fan control.    If you don't want it to do this, just disable it ==> but as long as it's working properly, it will run the fan when it needs to.
