Anyone ever controlled their fans via the CHT?

How would you account for signal processing? Meaning, the temp determines the voltage being passed through the CHT. But what would take that signal and tell the fans to cut on at a pre-specified voltage? Think I just burnt a circuit.

TR6's are too cold. I'm running the NGK Iriduim IX's.

IBD, I'd still like to know how to use the CHT to control electric fans. Not that I'm doing it, but I'm stumped as to how it would work. Appreciation would ensue......
