Quality pass through temp sensor?

Sorry if this has been asked a dozen times. I've been doing quite a bit of searching and coming up with very little considering the amount of info it's pulling.

Anyway, I'm looking for a good pass through sensor for the coolant loop. I'd like to run my rad fans based on the coolant temp vs. cpu temp. Here's the machine I've been building...
i9-9900k
z390-E board
64m ddr4 3200
dual MSI 1070 GPU's
lian li 011 dynamic case


Appreciate the help, if there's a link to this exact thing feel free to post it instead of wasting your time repeating. It's just the few I've found at any of the online mod stores don't seem to rate very high in reviews. I'd rather not put the system together and require repeated draining because something so simple failed.

Not sure who builds them into a pass (female/female adapter that goes thru floors/ceilings/walls)

But there are plenty of plug/cap sensors from the usual suspects that’ll do the exact same thing. They’d screw into any available radiator port.

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

I just put that link there because I am 10 minutes from MC, but Amazon sells them too. They work great.

Thanks, have been googling. Problem is I'm finding very contradicting information from site to site. Quality being the top of the list since I'd rather not have it fail or leak anymore than the next guy. Was also looking for an in-line just for ease of use. The only open ports I have are in the bitspower front distro plate. Ultimately the temp reading doesn't have to be at the radiators, since the system is small enough and flows enough that the delta-t will not change from one point to another. So I could ultimately plug a solid thermo-couple into the distro plate. I'll look at the bitspower and read some reviews on quality. I used to be a mechanical engineer and tend to over-think and especially don't like doing things more than once. Oddly enough i used to do mods like this back in the 90's, but we used small electric pumps and had to machine heads/cpu blocks ourselves. Parker stainless fittings and 3/8" stainless tubes. Almost always had to include some kind of site-glass to make sure no fungus was growing lol But that was back in the cold-cathode lighting days... LOL

that's a plug, not a pass thru.

anything inline is gonna be bigger, and do more. like a MIPS device from aquacomputer,.

if quality is a concern, then I'd go see if they make what you're looking for.

Appreciate the help. Think I'll go with the plug and put it into the distro panel. They make the short ones just for that. Like i said, the delta-t from the radiator to the distribution panel would be minimal in such a short run. Doing a plug type should be much less prone to leakage (at least from the cables coming out) and the readings should be just as accurate. This is my first build in quite awhile and first coolant build in over 20+ years (back then we used a blended version of glycol/water lol). Things have definitely come a VERY long ways since then. Even our thermocouples. We used the real deal (I did prototype power train development) and we had a really nice dyno lab. So the tc's more than we needed, but never failed or leaked lol Like i said, there's a huge amount of chinese made that tends to be much lower in quality. Last thing anybody needs is a case/floor full of coolant.

The plug works just fine. I have mine on a "T" fitting, so the fluid passes by it. It has never leaked and it's been on there for ~2 years.
