[Solved] Fan Control Help

I have an asus g73jh, and running linux kernel 3.0.
I have lm-sensors version 3.3.1 with libsensors version 3.3.1.
My fans have always been running at max speed, and its very loud and annoying!
This does not happen when I'm running windows 7 so I am trying to fix it.

Doing some searches around the forums many people suggest fan control.
Also I've read that after kernel version 2.6.31 there is some conflict with acpi and lm-sensors...

Initially when I ran sensors I did not get any fan output, but after using

modprobe w83627ehf force_id=0x8860

My sensors output is:

Adapter: PCI adapter
temp1:        +85.0°C

cpu0_vid:    +0.713 V

Also I checked with lsmod that I am no running asus atk0110

According to the arch wiki Fan Control.
I must fix my fan rpm values to continue.
So this is what I currently have on my /etc/sensors.d/sensors.conf on my chipset section

chip "w83627ehf-*" "w83627dhg-*" "w83667hg-*" "nct6775-*" "nct6776-*"

    label in0 "Vcore"
    label in2 "AVCC"
    label in3 "+3.3V"
    label in7 "3VSB"
    label in8 "Vbat"

    set fan3_div 4
    set in2_min  3.3 * 0.90
    set in2_max  3.3 * 1.10
    set in3_min  3.3 * 0.90
    set in3_max  3.3 * 1.10
    set in7_min  3.3 * 0.90
    set in7_max  3.3 * 1.10
    set in8_min  3.0 * 0.90
    set in8_max  3.0 * 1.10

And I'm receiving this error.
Error: File /etc/sensors.d/sensors.conf, line 319: Failed to set value
w83627ehf-isa-fff8: At least one "set" statement failed

I'm pretty sure I do not have a syntax error?
Line 319 is the line I modified.
'set fan3_div 4'

I'm not sure how Fan Control will fix my problem, or if there is an easier to fix this.
All help is appreciated!

Re: [Solved] Fan Control Help

Before doing all the above have you first of all checked that you do not have some runaway process using lots of CPU ("top")? Also, do you have the acpid daemon running?

Re: [Solved] Fan Control Help

Ok, I rebooted my computer and checked top. I am not using anything high cpu intensive.
Also I am not using acpid. Though after reading your post I tried using it hoping by magic my fans would relax but it didn't work so I uninstalled.
Some other points I came across,
Running

#sensors -s

Does not give me an error if I have not added the w83627ehf module
Also after adding the module and trying to run sudo rc.d start sensors, also gives me the same error.
That one "set" statement failed.

Re: [Solved] Fan Control Help

please check DAEMONS laptop_mode, granola cpufreq(ondemand etc.pp.), kernel settings (e.g. modeset=1 pcie_aspm=force i915.i915_enable_rc6=1 i915.i915_enable_fbc=1 i915.lvds_downclock=1)...
