2 pin fan connectors will only power the fan, the 3 pin ones will provide info to the motherboard and OS.
If youre using a fan controller to adjust fan speeds then 2 pin fans should work fine.

No.

A temperature probe is just a NTC thermistor. It will need some other piece of hardware to interpret the reading and provide it in an usable format for you.

Like a fan controller with temperature control.

Thanks
That's what I thought but there are so many works this way stuff hidden beneath the surface. I've just put in order in and fan controller was edited out of my order in place put an on off switch for cost and quality.
Frozen CPU has there own made in house item another 35$ on top of the probe costs. There are fan headers and temps and 4 pin galore, it was a hope GB added a : " can also be used for " pins n one header.
Again, thank you.... How do you think an ir gun will do? .
