Thank you sir! My new Mobo actually does have two temp sensor headers. Can you recommend me two temp probes and also where you would generally install them in the loop?That depends. If you want a curve based profile for your fans and or pumps, I would advise with the water temp or a delta-T between the water and air used for a gradual change. I use water temps as opposed to hardware temps which most use. I think it's nuts and annoying to hear your fans/pumps constantly ramping up like rabid dogs. Of course all of this would only work if you have a MB with headers for temp probes on it as I've seen on a newer board or a 3rd party controller.
I'll check into that. The board isn't here yet but I'll search around and see what I can find. It's an Asus ROG Formula IX board.I use two water temp sensors on the top rad. Doesn't really matter where you place it since the loop's water temp will reach a equilibrium after 30 mins or so.
Some of the sensors you should look for are from Aquacomputer, Phobya and Bitspower.
In your case, I might either go with a single air and water temp or both water but that's up to you since I'm not familiar with the implementation and function of the software and or BIOS along with the other headers on the board. If you are able to take the average of both temps, I'd go both water. If you're able to create a delta between the two headers, I'd go air and water.
