FWIW, I've just installed these modules on my Gigabyte MA770-UD3 board
with a Phenom-II X2. I'm seeing only the CPU temp, nothing else despite
sensors-detect saying it found an it867 chip (and havng installed the
kmod-it87 package).

But the CPU temp it shows agrees within one degree or so with what the
BIOS reports when checked during a reboot, so it must be set up fairly
cloe to right without me having to muck with anything.

(my previous board, another older Gigabyte with a 32-bit Athlon needed
a lot of tweaking to get tolerably decent readings, so I'm pleased with
what I've got now.)

I had no idea these things were available, so I think all those who
have posted helpful information in this thread.
