Naah as tim said you just have to run fancontrol or use Raptor's OpenBMC 
port for the KGPE-D16/KCMA-D8 boards.

Additionally I added this info to the wiki many months ago, as I too was 
bothered by the fan speed when I first installed coreboot years ago and 
assumed something was broken to which tim explained it for me too :D
