I did some searching around but the only topic I managed to find on this was another guy in the Asus forums asking the exact same question but no replies =(.
Basically, can I control the speed for the fans connected to the motherboard in Ubuntu/Mint? I have every header set up as PWM in the BIOS and every fan I have connected to them is PWM-capable but when I run
pwmconfig it just comes up saying it found nothing.
Am I missing some steps or is it really not possible?.

Note that many motherboards do not have pwm circuitry installed, even if your sensor chip supports pwm. We will attempt to briefly stop each fan using the pwm controls. The program will attempt to restore each fan to full speed after testing. However, it is ** very important ** that you physically verify that the fans have been to full speed after the program has completed. /usr/sbin/pwmconfig: There are no pwm-capable sensor modules installed
