Lenovo Thinkpad FAN Control on Linux RHEL 6.4 & Ubuntu

This should work for most flavors,

To Start your FAN at maximum level (7) type:
sudo su
sudo echo "options thinkpad_acpi experimental=1 fan_control=1" >/etc/modprobe.d/thinkpad_acpi.conf
sudo modprobe -r thinkpad_acpi && sudo modprobe thinkpad_acpi
echo level 7 | sudo tee /proc/acpi/ibm/fan

This was tested on Thinkpad T430, and by the way the key distribution for this keyboard is so lame.
