Default PowerColor HD 4870 1GB - How do enable manual fan control?

Hi Guys,

For some reason on my HD 4870 I cannot adjust fan speed control manually, the option isn't available on the CCC control panel.. anyone know how to enable it? I'm on Windows 7..

Two questions:

#1: Is it the stock cooler?

#2: Which drivers?

You can't manually control that fan. Period.
