I have an Asus N76VB notebook with Ubuntu 14.04 and TLP for power managment. However, the fan is always on. It's not really loud, but it's annoying. My CPU usage is around 1-2%. It's clocked at 1.20 GHz.
acpi=force to my boot parameters but it doesn't change anything.
/proc/acpi/fan: No such file or directory /proc/acpi/thermal_zone: No such file or directory
I've loaded all Asus ACPI modules.
lsmod | grep asus:

Somehow, it can read the temperatures.

I really hope someone knows how to solve this. Almost all information I could find was about saving power to create less heat.
I got Intel and NVIDIA (GeForce 740M) graphics but I'm almost anytime on Intel.
