Hello Stefan from Lourens:

" I have an Asus A7M266. Sensors detect detected the wrong modules on my

Thanks for sharing your config with me, it gave me some ideas.

According to some info from, Asus A7V133 and
A7M266 share the 'Primary Sensor Chip" (AS99127F), 'Case Sensor' (Asus 1)
and "CPU Sensor' (Asus 2) ??

chip "as99127f-*"
# Same as above for w83782d except that in5 and in6 negative voltages
# are computed as in the w83781d.

Kernel driver `w83781d.o'
Status: W83781D support is complete and well-tested.
W83782D support is complete and well-tested.
W83783S support is complete but has not been well-tested.
W83627HF support is complete but has not been well-tested.
AS99127F support is BETA and has known problems due to lack of a
chip datasheet. See below.

It seems that our sensor chip is not fully supported thanks to Asus not
releasing the datasheet.

It is about time for my mobo rotation and guess who is not on my list.
I will stick to mobos that use components that are not "propriety".

My voltage readings are OK using your configs but the temp values are
still crazy.



If you find a solution and become attached to it,
the solution may become your next problem.
