The LM_Sensors package controls fan speed as well as monitor system sensors.

Take a look at the fancontrol script that gets installed with the lm_sensors package.  http://linux.die.net/man/8/fancontrol

See if lm_sensors has drivers for your board
yum -y install lm_sensors

It does appear to be looping - but each iteration looks like it is probing different clients.  The loop starts over after the line Client found at address 0x2e - which changed to 0x2f.

How long have you left it to run?  Have you canceled it or is it continuing?  It may just take a while.

It is a risky business... What happens if your userspace fan control script does not rise fan speed under extreme system load? A grill party would be moderate description of the resulting smoke...

Probing for `SPD EEPROM'...                                 Yes

no fan control for me....

At least it should be able to detect i7 builtin thermometer.

To make computer quiet:
Upgrade BIOS
Reset BIOS to defaults
Normally fan speed is set to automatic by BIOS, but check the options, maybe you need to flip the option.

You must be able to find quieter fan if one you have is too loud...

Cheers... Asus does not change over time... It was same 10 years ago...
Now upgrade BIOS, reset, re-enable fan control, and drill through with sensors-detect.

It was 200$ not so cheap, of course, maybe it's cheap in comparison with Deluxe version :)
