Nice review and piece of hardware, but it's redundant--as are all devices of this sort. It would be nice to see an item like this use the ALREADY ON THE BOARD temperature monitors. It would negate the need for temp probes. Passing temps to the hardware could be done with a simple driver. That option would also clean up 5 probe leads. But for absolute in case airflow and organization, Speedfan is the way to go.
