Check the BIOS and see option for Temperature monitoring.
You can then let the Mobo automatically control the fan speeds depending on the temps in the case and of the processor.
Depending on what sort of fans you have in the case and what sort of ambient temps is the place in, you can then set threshold limits to increase fans speed when they cross the 50C barrier.

Are the cpu and case fans plugged into the motherboard? cpu fan should be 4 pin and case fan should either be molex or 3 pin.

Stay away from speed fan, that's a really bad utility.
