I have 3 ZOTAC IONITX-A-U Atom N330 1.6GHz Dual-Core using M350 cases.

One running with NO fan and not seeing any problems(Front end only) in
any logs or physically.  It is used in bedroom.

The other two have the stock fan installed.

I've looked for other alternative 60mm fans but none that would fit
with the M350 case.

Ran the command that you posted above with no results -

nvidia-settings -q gpucoretemp

I've googled in the past to try setting up lm-sensors but had no luck
with the chipset.
