If a motherboard does not have temperature sensor headers, is there any way to add temperature sensors via AIC or USB or SATA or other means so that the sensor is readable by the OS and monitoring software?

Something like an Aquaero has sensor inputs. I know you can use it in the AquaSuite software itself. Not sure at this point about third party implementation. Generally, look for water cooling fan controllers, they are usually connected via USB and feature temperature probe headers. Then look at the actual model that suites you and read through the manual or the website to see how the sensors are exposed.

Are you looking to control fans with the temperature read by a probe? Or is it for scientific purposes and data logging?

I really do not want more software applications, AIDA64 and HWiNFO are all I use.

I only want temperature monitoring capability for my loop through either (ideally both) AIDA64 or HWiNFO. My chassis and radiator fans run 100% all the time.
