Scoured the internet, I can't find what type of thermister is used in the MG plus hotend. I am using themister #1 right now but it seems to run a little hotter then what pronterface reads.
Also if anyone has any experience with this hotend, is there any advice you could share about this unit? Is a fan needed for PLA?

If the resistance of the thermistor is around 100k at room temp then #1 should be a good start. Fans are always recommended for PLA.- in particular, when printing small parts.

Take the thermistor and stick it in boiling water. Read it with Pronterface. If it says 100C you are ok.
