@madbiologist tried profile based management; the results were unfortunately even worse. After fluffing around with dynpm I got fan speed down to ~80% which is annoying by usable - profiles get it stuck back at 100%, it starts low but just keeps climbing and doesn't seem to be able to drop back down. I think the problem is that being a crappy laptop the single fan is responsible for the thermal control of the whole system and it all gets bit tangled up. Thanks for the hint though. Also, thanks for the "" tip, that's made movie night hell of a lot less annoying. ;-)

Ugh, wish someone would squash this bug...
