    What you would be looking for is called a Rheobus. There are several commercially available models on the market or you can search the Web for a DIY (do it yourself) guide and make your own.

    But then you can't manually control the speed of the fan. :shrug:

    Unless ya remove the temp sensor and enable full speed operation of the fan then the rheobus will be useless. ;)
