I'd doubt it, unless the motherboard is controlling the fan speed. If you want a high speed fan, you'll probably have to fit one yourself. As far as ET's comment, that seems to point at why AMD did not equip a 7000RPM fan on the stock heatsink - it might exceed the current draw permitted by the fan headers on a standard no-name generic board.
