I just got my machine back from an RMA repair--the issue was with GPU temps idling in the 70s. I'm still watching to see how it does, currently it is pretty settled in the low 60s on idle.

But, my fan speed used to always be 30%. Now it's --RPM. I'm thoroughly confused. Any thoughts?

Your system isn't getting a reading on the fan. Since you're not overheating I would say that the fan is working but the replacement fan doesn't have a speed sensor or it is damaged. Or I suppose the fan wasn't replaced (maybe just thermal paste) but the sensor was damaged during re-install.
