    Question Controller to PS/MB

    Hello, I'm wondering if it is possible to connect a temperature sensor to molex or 12, 5 PINs ? It has a Line and Neutral lines out, also it has to be powered by 4-24 V DC In that case, can I plug them directly into molex or sata or even Motherboard pins? Is it save for my PS/MB? Thanks in advance.
