Question H80i (v2) - Pump/Liquid Temps

Couple of questions regarding the H80i:

When corsair link software reports the "temp" of the H80i, where is the temp sensor located in the loop? Is it measuring the temp of the pump motor, the temp of the copper block touching the cpu, or is it measuring the temp of the actual liquid? The reason I ask is simply for a better understanding of how the corsair closed loop systems work. I am intricately familiar with DIY water cooling, and have built several dating back over a decade. I have always been hesitant to use these closed loop kits, but this is one of the first units i have seen which actually might be worth looking into. (I Absolutely HATED the external SATA power connectors... good job on cleaning up the v2)

Second, Is there any way to allow other hardware monitoring/fan control software to actually read the Temps and Fan RPMs from the H80i? I can get the RPM for the pump head itself to be seen by the bios/other software, and the reported RPM is half of actual (this is normal for pumps, i know), but no ability to read the Temp or Fan RPM outside of the Corsair Link Software...

Why would I want to do this? The answer is simple. The Corsair Link software is pretty rudimentary to be honest. I will be posting more about this issue in the appropriate forum.

The sensor should be a typical flow through reading at pump exit. Since the chamber is small, there should not be a lot of volatility in the reading.

Other software can read the Asetek based hardware, but it is up to the relevant author to make it work or not. Aida and HWinfo both can do this and I am sure there are others. However, at present you will not want Corsair Link/iCUE active while the other program is running. It can require some management. For example, HWinfo will read the cooler data, but only after the driver loads and then Link is closed. Once you put it to sleep, you will have to restart Link, exit, then launch HWINFO again. Minor inconvenience and probably worth it if you need more detailed monitoring.
