I have a 'dumb' fan controller (ZMFC1) and I just let it sit at the threshold I want (all min) all the time, water temps don't vary much so I don't find the need to adjust the fans; I'd rather take the few *C hit at load temps than raise the noise level. I would like the water temp probe for 'scientific' purposes, but for daily use I don't see a need. But like I said, I set my fans all the way down and leave them so it doesn't bother me. To perfectly optimize your temps your way is good, but I just don't like the idea of the fans ramping up. You could use speedfan or something else to trigger a shut-down event when the water temp got too high though, which might be useful. You can do the same with a pump RPM wire too.
