Default Re: Nvclock able to change fanspeed Nvidia-Settings not.

I am running 295.40 from

By default the fan run too fast and is noisy. So I set the speed (via nvclock for the moment) as necessary via cron. My only problem is to remove error log from the kernel because of some memory usage ( rsyslog do that automatically for me).

I was just wondering why nvclock can manage the fan without the help of xorg.conf and why nvida-settings not.
Thank you for helping. JCD
