k8temp shows 4 different values (sensors)

When I type "sensors" in terminal, it shows 4 different values.

Adapter: PCI adapter
Core0 Temp:
Core0 Temp:
Core1 Temp:
Core1 Temp:

Should I make some setting for k8temp ?
Or It's normal to display 4 values for 2 cores?

since its been a week I will try to get ball rolling.

with root powers...install gkrellm which is a front end (gui) to lm_sensors

2) with root powers run

3) your kernel needs a compile in or module to see amd k8 and yes I have some concerns that k8 should only give one will know more once you have set up the correct settings...You will need a sensors.conf and I put my other stuff detected by sensors-detect into rc.local

rc.local has

# Chip drivers
modprobe it87.....this is my separate sensor for fan speed depends on your hw
modprobe k8temp
# sleep 2 # optional
/usr/bin/sensors -s # recommended

so after running sensors and editting your files reboot and then use gkrellm to add sensors to your display.

I end up with 4 temps but one is clearly shown as k8 and the others relate to my mobo and cpu etc
