The nVidia X Server Settings displays that the fan is running at 40% but gives no option to change the setting.

for some reason the xorg.conf file is empty. According to his img there is a lot of info yet mine has nothing. Unsure of what to do with that.
conky will not change your fan speed
it can show it but not change it

your xorg.conf may be somewhere else

1)sudo apt-get install nvclock
2)nvclock -f -F 80 (in this case, would set fan speed to 80%)

Note - you can run this command @ boot and fan speed would get set to 80% as soon as you log in.
