I ran pwmconfig just fine, and the fans are running much quieter (before they were all full speed all the time), however I want to fine tune things a bit. So, I try to run fancontrol but i get this:

    $ fancontrol
Loading configuration from /etc/fancontrol ...

Common settings:
  INTERVAL=10

Settings for hwmon0/device/pwm4:
  Depends on hwmon0/device/temp2_input
  Controls hwmon0/device/fan4_input
  MINTEMP=35
  MAXTEMP=55
  MINSTART=92
  MINSTOP=32
  MINPWM=32
  MAXPWM=255

Settings for hwmon0/device/pwm3:
  Depends on hwmon0/device/temp2_input
  Controls hwmon0/device/fan3_input
  MINTEMP=35
  MAXTEMP=55
  MINSTART=94
  MINSTOP=34
  MINPWM=34
  MAXPWM=255

Settings for hwmon0/device/pwm2:
  Depends on hwmon0/device/temp2_input
  Controls hwmon0/device/fan2_input
  MINTEMP=32
  MAXTEMP=55
  MINSTART=150
  MINSTOP=0
  MINPWM=0
  MAXPWM=255

Settings for hwmon0/device/pwm1:
  Depends on hwmon0/device/temp2_input
  Controls hwmon0/device/fan1_input
  MINTEMP=37
  MAXTEMP=55
  MINSTART=154
  MINSTOP=34
  MINPWM=34
  MAXPWM=255

Error: file hwmon0/device/pwm4 doesn't exist
Error: file hwmon0/device/pwm3 doesn't exist
Error: file hwmon0/device/pwm2 doesn't exist
Error: file hwmon0/device/pwm1 doesn't exist

At least one referenced file is missing. Either some required kernel
modules haven't been loaded, or your configuration file is outdated.
In the latter case, you should run pwmconfig again.

I am not really sure where to go from here, I don't know which kernels it may be talking about our how to obtain them. If it helps, here are my system specs:

CPU: AMD A10-6800K Mobo: Asus F2A85-M Pro SSD: Samsung 840 Series 120GB Memory 8GB G Skill Ripjaws 2400Mhz OS: Ubuntu 13.10

I also tried running fancontrol in sudo and received this:

File /var/run/fancontrol.pid exists, is fancontrol already running?

Any tips are greatly appreciated.
