Click on the first box (the Custom box on top), under Target Adapter.
The first box on the left is the Low Level System Settings.
Then enable low-level fan control (auto), but follow the procedures in the link above.

Here are my auto fan speed control settings:
Duty cycle min: 60
Duty cycle max: 100
T min: 40
T range: 53
T operating: 110
T low limit: 0
T high limit: 110

Plug these numbers into the spreadsheet provided through the above link and you'll see the fan speeds in relation to temperature.
Honestly, I don't know why more people don't use this Riva Tuner option, it really works well.
