Is it possible to apply my HWiNFO64 fan settings to my BIOS? (Alienware M17x R2)

Question 
I got fan problems after upgrading graphics cards for my M17x R2.

The graphics card recognition problem for Alienware is solved.
But fans just don't run properly.
I think the best solution I can find for now is HWiNFO64.
The problem is
I HAVE TO get into Windows and run HWiNFO64 in order to make fans functional.

HWiNFO doesn't modify the BIOS at all, so there's no such possibility.

I have read some threads about fan control for Alienware.

There might be some BIOS control, but the fan control core functionality is implemented in the Embedded Controller firmware.
