    Have you tried looking in your BIOS for a speed setting? Many times, that can be configured in the BIOS.

    ...or maybe considering other cooling options?

    Is the CPU running that hot under load, or idle? If it's running that hot when idle, you may want to think about reseating the heat sink with some good arctic silver or something, and as ancestor(v) suggested, try another cooling option.

    ...Or just use SpeedFan.
    It lets you control the speed of all of your fans, along with reporting all of the temps to you and telling you when they are too hot.

    Your bios will also report what it thinks is correct,in hardware monitor, you will also see your fan speeds.
