Not to sound stupid, but should an Alienware m18x R2 (one Geforce 675m) have two fans or three fans? I haven't seen anyone answer that anywhere. And I recently noticed mine has two, with one dummy cover where the third fan should be. (so nothing gets in it)

what are your temps? If your temps exceed 70C with both cpu and GPU maxed then i'd get a 3rd fan.

Oh it's way over that, 95c when playing some games. (70c others) 65c-70c on idle.
