On the Kirkwood Diskstations, the first number (100, 120 or 150) refers
to the middle of the three fan speed resistors, the second number (15 or
32) refers to the first fan control pin, and the third number (18 or 35)
refers to the first fan alarm pin.

i.e. the 100-32-35 uses fan speed resistors of 33, 100 and 150 ohms,
uses pins 32-34 for fan control, and uses pin 35 for the fan alarm.

The 5000RPM was interpolated from my measured RPM pulse rate (4200PPM)
of the 80mm fan in my DS211j (which uses the 150-32-35 fan config) at
maximum RPM.
