comment Loud fans despite cool system under Linux (but not Windows)
Updating the BIOS has had no effect, I still get "There are no pwm-capable sensor modules installed" when I run pwmconfig (required for fancontrol). But on the plus side, it does boot faster now :D

FuzzyToothpaste, I'd already replied to Oli's comment. Ruslan's question was "Have you checked advice from ..." to which I replied 'Yes' because I had checked it, but it hadn't helped. As for your question, the PC is custom-built but the motherboard is an Asus Z87-A. I'll try updating the BIOS if there's a newer version and see if that changes anything

Yes Ruslan, it doesn't help. And kernel version is 3.13.0-27-generic.

comment How to control fan speed?
I've tried this and I can't get any further than sudo pwmconfig, because I get: "There are no pwm-capable sensor modules installed". This is after the sensors-detect command does find an 'Intel digital thermal sensor'. I've also tried that kernel parameter. Can anyone suggest a solution?

comment Electricity went out while installing software
For future reference: Minos' answer is equivalent to simply starting the installation again from the software centre, except it will needlessly reinstall programs which had already installed correctly as well. It also wouldn't work until you ran the above command anyway.

I'm confident it's the case fans. On Windows, OpenHardwareMonitor says the GPU fan is at 37% and the Nvidia Linux app also says 37%.

And yes. The dpkg command will fix the package it was currently installing, and the apt-get command will make sure that all the other packages that are needed for it to work are present and installed. But there's no way for it to know what other, unrelated packages you wanted to install afterwards, so you'll have to start those again.
