Logged in as root (sudo -i) I created this script on my T60. I don't do anything that exercises the GPU too heavily so it looks at the CPU only.

Thanks a lot. It seems to do something (I don't understand a bit of the code), but then it goes back to constant 3500 rpm. After hiting the code, fan stops for a second and then it goes back to 3500... (Temperature at testing the solution: 49)

Thanks. I did that, no result.
EDIT: I did it. thanks to thinkfan utility. I had to uninstall thinkpad fan control and now everything works just fine
