There is nothing to play with the fans, for some hardware you could
hack a driver though. Fans are controlled by the BIOS or some embedded

Setting clock speed is possible for most older but not recent Intel
chips with the est driver. The newer chips can only be controlled via
ACPI and we don't have a suitable driver.
