I am cooling my cpu with the Thermaltake Volcano 9, and it is set up with a tempsensor under the cpu. This should drive the fan speed according to cpu-temp. It works normally in WindowsXP. When I boot into Linux, the fan goes to the lowest rpm-setting and stays there. I thought this setup was controlled by bios (ASUS A7N8X/AMD2500+) but it seems like Linux takes control somehow.

How can I get the variable fan to work correctly? Nothing found on Thermaltakes website. I know I could always hardwire the fan to full blast but that is noisy, and inconvenient as I also boot into Windows regularly.
