I can modify fanspeed using nvclock ( very simple ).

But I can't using nvidia-settings.

Code:
nvidia-settings -t --query [fan:0]/GPUCurrentFanSpeed 
30
Code:
nvidia-settings -a "[fan:0]/GPUFanControlState=1" -a "[fan:0]/GPUCurrentFanSpeed=47"
Nothing change :

Code:
nvidia-settings -t --query [fan:0]/GPUCurrentFanSpeed 
30


I am not using X11 configuration file.

I have install the driver by hand following the readme

My config :

Opensuse 12.1
Linux 3.1.9-1.4-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT Fri Jan 27 08:55:10 UTC 2012 (efb5ff4) x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
nvidia-settings-270.41.06-1.36.x86_64
nvidia-computeG02-290.10-13.1.x86_64
x11-video-nvidiaG02-290.10-13.1.x86_64
nvidia-gfxG02-kmp-desktop-290.10_k3.1.0_1.2-12.1.x86_64

You need a xorg.conf with coolbits to change fan settings
Code:
cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf
# RPM Fusion - nvidia-xorg.conf
# 
Section "Device"
	Identifier  "Videocard0"
	Driver      "nvidia"
        Option "Coolbits" "4"
EndSection
