My temperature sensor is usually called "hand".
I have an Alphacool Eisball reservoir on top of my computer, within arms reach. If/when I want to know the water temp I just grab the reservoir.
Since the pump is running at a constant speed and there are no fans blowing at the convector I have little reason to constantly monitor the water temperature.

I've been touting the benefit of using a fluid temp sensor since I did my first loop. For silent systems or any system that is cooling more than one component it's very important to know the fluid temp.

I don't really understand why it's not something that isn't included by default in a pump or common fitting like an elbow.
