i use a program that senses the temperature of cpu, gpu, hdd and chipset and controls the fans speed acordingly. it costs about $30, but its worth every penny !
1.install the program
2.set it up to take absolute control regarding the system fans(top right - 'automatic fan control' - 'enable temperature control')
3.click 'options' - right menu
4.click tab 'temperature control'
5.create a policy that suits you best, considering the sorounding temperature and the future load
6.return to main menu and select that policy
7.set the program as the single startup program and restart the windows
the program shoul dtake control as soon as it loads on startup and shut down the fans if the temperature is ok(which is, considering the cold boot)
and if this doesn't work, at least you can shut down the fans yourself from the program.
