My BIOS reports CPU temp 10C higher on average, so around 40C. Which seems to be the opposite to everyone else. Usually Core is hotter...

LOL, yeah it's true. I think my CPU temp is actually Temp1 as it matches the cpu temp reading in nvidia monitor.

Is it good to attach two fans onto the Ultra 120E? If so, should the fans be attached to the front and back or both at the front?

Thanks.

you can cable tie one fan to the other through the holes




One in front one in back, both blowing towards the rear
2 Fans not much cop though ,Best just 1 at the front ,You have an exhaust fan already.
