I'm actually surprised to find that there isn't much out there, at least that I can find, that is a drop-in component. I HAVE found a few fan controllers with temp leads, but as my Cooler Master HAF Stacker 935 has LOTS of fan positions, and I have them all filled, I am controlling fans in banks rather than independently, which means I need heavy power output that these fan controllers can't handle. I already have an NZXT Sentry Mix 2 controller that can handle 30W per channel, so I see no reason to replace it.

What I'm looking for is something like this Scythe product:

But without the fan control knobs or RPM readout.

I've found tons of "build it yourself" products but I am stuck on finding a simple pop-in device; as I am now disabled detailed fine work is rather beyond me... I'm better at cutting myself than plastic or metal. I suppose all I need is 3 positions (CPU temp from under the MB, radiator temp, and GPU temp) but I could find a purpose for a 4th if it was available.

Any help would be welcomed.

Found this:

nMEDIAPC Black Aluminum PRO-LCD-B Media Center Programmable LCD

Looks like it's driver can interface with SpeedFan, so it would be reliant on existing temperature probes on the motherboard itself (not entirely sure if I could read the Corsair H105 temp sensor...). It reviews OK, the software is complex but after years of supporting *Nix servers I doubt it would throw me.

Anybody used this before?
