Default Looking for a good fan controller with temerature... Just for the temp reading

I really don't know if what I am looking for has a name of its own, but I am looking for a 5.25in drive bay fan controller thing, but just for the temperature reading (if worth it, another reason I came here). I am really only wanting it, like I said, for the temerature readings. Also, are they even that accurate?

What would you all recomend for the... "most accurate" at temperature display.

P.S: I hope that all made sense. It seems like I typed rather messy/compliacted.

Scythe Kaze Master of sorts is probably what you're looking for.

Though where do you plan to mount these temperature probes? Because really, I've never seen a point in having any since you can get the direct core temperatures of things using software.

Its more or less for looks , but I want it to be accurate. Where do the probes usually go?

usually the temp probes go wherever u want them to (make sure they dont clip a fan blade for obvious reasons)
mine are on: memory heatspreader, hard drive, northbridge and southbridge

Oh, I always thought they recorded the temp of the processor. So when I saw the four temps on the unit, I thought that was for all the cores... Im such a noob lol.

Definitely not possible. Only way to get the core temperatures is via software, not probes.

I have no idea if it's possible, CoreTemp supports the G15 LCD, so maybe you could mod up some sort of similar LCD into your drive bays?
