I have a Phenom x4 955 BE with a stock cooler, and its getting pretty hot, doing around 40c on idle and 57-62c when gaming etc. Even under load the CPU fan is only doing around 2700 rpm which i am guessing is far too low, how can I force the cpu fan's rpm higher? Thanks

It's overclocked? If not go in the BIOS and lower the CPU voltage to 1.2-1.25V.

No its stock. Windows 7 seems to throttle the voltage according to power settings, is this right?

Thanks, I could only get it stable at 1.29V, do I need to alter the NB voltage or can that stay as is?
