Where are you reading this? Your motherboard has ports for additional fan(s) and the fact that one system fan reads zero just means that there many not be a fan plugged into that port, OR it could mean that your case exhaust fan is not working. You need to also read your internal temperatures to see if that is where your problem is. You can read these from your BIOS or from a program like Speedfan and this will tell you if you need to look into this avenue for your problem. You also should open your case to visually inspect your heat sinks and fans. If you have never done this, purchase a can of compressed air (dust off or similar) and plan to blow out all of the dust in these and other areas of your computer case. You should ONLY vacuum the bottom of the inside of the case if needed and keep the hose (static electric and physical damage from the hose) away from EVERYTHING else inside the computer. If you have a case fan that is still not working, just replace it (really easy repair).
This post really should be in the hardware forum, so if you need more help (especially if it needs much more advice), you should post your additional questions there.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

ESS either refers to your sound card or "Easy Energy Saver". Have you been messing with the BIOS settings? Regardless, your question has nothing to do with CPUs or overclocking, please post your question in the Hardware forum.
