Did you run sensors-detect, and if so, which variant of it87 did it detect?

Indeed. The standard it87 driver in 5.4 only supports IT8705F and 
IT8712F. I backported additional support for IT8716F, IT8718F, IT8720F 
and IT8726F Super I/O chips into the it87 module in ELRepo (kmod-it87), 
which will also automatically update lm_sensors as a dependency from the 
same repo.

I reported this upstream over 18 months ago and it's now scheduled to be 
fixed in 5.5, maybe.

In the meantime, the ELRepo package has the latest updated driver for 
this hardware.
