Tapping into thermistor under CPU socket

Would it be feasable to use the existing thermistor under the CPU to control the speed of a Smart fan 2? Would it screw up the reading of the temp probe for the board itself? I tried taping the
sensor that came with the fan to the bottom of the CPU but it doesn't seem to be very responsive.
What do you guys think?
