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

I was just wondering why nvclock can manage the fan without the help of xorg.conf and why nvida-settings not.
Honestly, that's a moot point. nvidia-config is the officially-sanctioned solution that will continue to be maintained and updated. NVClock was a third-party utility that's no longer maintained or updated as far as I can tell. I enjoyed it while it lasted, but it's gone. I'm grateful that nVidia stepped in with a solution. It is what it is.
