Motherboard Suggestion

Can anyone recommend a motherboard, without completely breaking the bank, that will allow me to use Dynamix AutoFan Control to operate based on hard drive temp, rather than CPU temp?

Does such a thing exist?  Or is there a way to do it as an addon?

This would require that the temperature of the hard drives are reported "individually" to the BIOS.

In 30 years I haven't seen a board that can or does something like this...

But maybe a modern server-board can do this... i dont know...

You can do that with the IPMI plugin and and board with IPMI support, e.g., from Supermicro, current boards will cost from around $200, you can also get used much cheaper.
