On OS X Lion I use smcFanControl to increase fan speed. What application can I use on Windows 7 on MacBook Pro?

I've used SpeedFan with Windows running in a Bootcamp partitions to access temperature data and control the fan speeds on an iMac. He's very quick to turn around unsupported chipsets and the software tells you if you should report your chipset to the author for addition.

I can't increase fan speed. I go in Configure -> Fan, and see no fans listed – geotavros Apr 13 '12 at 21:27
Report this to the SpeedFan dev and he can help you out with chipset support. – Ian C. Apr 13 '12 at 21:34
Done so, but no feedback. Lubbo's MacBook Pro Fan Control is turning my fans to max rpm and shows 90 C for GPU#2 temperature. – geotavros Apr 20 '12 at 13:26

Macs Fan Control does the job well. There are both Windows and Mac version available for free.
