So sure, in an ideal world it'd work, but ultimately if you used the better arrangement for CPU fan that reading would be resolved, and not having PSU fan reading merely

Thanks. Cross G.L. He was amazed to hear the details of my troubleshooting. I apologize for the apparent rudeness of our phone support rep.
