Does it have a slick orange-yellow colored tip at the end of the wire? That is what reads the temperature.

well, its part of the case. it came installed with it. the end is about an inch or 2 long and it is thin and flat and there are 2 sliver wires you can see inside it. I dont know what case fan it is (all of them?)

If its just a case fan then I would just place it somewhere in the middle of the case so it measures the air the fans will be taking out.

I put mine on the CPU heatsink and it's usuallly within 2* of what my software system monitor shows. I don't think the temperature sensor has anything to do with the fan control.
