I tried to follow the wiki page about fan speed control but after
# cp /etc/sensors3.conf /etc/sensors.d/sensors.conf
It says to add a line to your chipset config in the new file /etc/sensors.d/sensors.conf.
The problem is that I find no mention of the chipsets for my computer in this file.
$ sensors acpitz-virtual-0 Adapter: Virtual device temp1: +46.0°C (crit = +108.0°C) coretemp-isa-0000 Adapter: ISA adapter Physical id 0: +50.0°C (high = +87.0°C, crit = +105.0°C) Core 0: +50.0°C (high = +87.0°C, crit = +105.0°C) Core 1: +45.0°C (high = +87.0°C, crit = +105.0°C) asus-isa-0000 Adapter: ISA adapter temp1: +46.0°C
According to the wiki my chipset is either acpitz-virtual-0, coretemp-isa-0000 or asus-isa-0000, is it right ?

Yes ASUS UX31A is 2 month old.
Intel Mobile QS67 express chipset
Intel Core i5 Ivy Bridge Dual Core i5-3317U 1.7Ghz
You'll need to find out what hardware that corresponds to in order to get support assuming someone has worked on it. As a long shot, try this package in the AUR: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=61127
Just want to mention, that somebody figured out how to control the fan within Linux on the Zenbook Prime UX31A
In Windows, Fan Control is possible with a tool called "NoteBook Fan Control" and it works SUPERB on my second windows partition. Everything is completely quite until the temp reaches a given value, e.g. 65°C.
I REALLY HOPE somebody will have the time and knowledge to make a small similar program for Linux.
edit: i just compiled this:
and it works, I can set the fan speed on my UX31A Prime (values 0 - 255)
It is written that is is an ugly hack but hey, it works! Now there should be a possibility to read the temperature and set the speed accordingly to it.
