Default Front fan is hot and back fan is fresh

Hey guys! Do you know if it's normal that the front fan is hot? sometimes the grid of my front 120mm fan is like 35c or 37c ,well i can put the hand on it but it's hot.

What is also strange is that the rear fan does not blow really hot air and the back grid is fresh, is that the same with our computers? because normally,the back fan blows hot air out of the case no? it blows warm-fresh air.

For my front fan ,i don't really feel airflow, of course it sucks air but i don't know why it's so hot.My temps are fresh tho,and the front fan is hot only in games.my GPU blows air towards the side (heatpipes) so that's strange...maybe drives??

I would check the orientation of the fans to make sure they are blowing the proper direction. Also check the bios to make sure the rpm isn't turned way down manually or through bios rpm control.

CPUIDHW monitor :

FANIN0 = 19 rpm
FANIN1 = 757 RPM
FANIN3 = 1081 RPM

only 2x 120mm fans in the case right now.

i guess 757 is not a lot,gonna check the bios

Yes, one Seagate 1tb 7200rpm drive, quite close to it,i'd say, 5 centimeters between drive and fan

If you have a fan grill that is hot, perhaps the motor is calling it quits? Espically with a 19RPM fan....that sounds like a whole different problem. Is your CPU fan plugged into you MB, because I bet you that is one of the readings there.
