Ubuntu: iMac 27 i5 2010 HDD fan control


Since I've changed the original HDD to SSD the fan is going like crazy always at max or close to it. Under /sys/devices/platform/applesmc786/ if I edit fan2_output to 0 the fan stops for a second before going back up to 5400rpm. I could make a script to keep writing 0 every 0.5 second to the file, bu I believe that will be a heavy burden on the machine. I can see other files that could be useful fan2_input, fan2_manual, fan2_max, but I can't write on it even after changing permissions. Maybe writing 0 to the fan2_max will make the fan stop, but again I can't write. Why cat I write to this files, and how to solve it? Im on Ubuntu Gnome 16.04

Thanks Alex
