nforce3 and asus k8n temperature sensors?

I have nforce3 chipset on an asus k8n motherboard.

And an amd64 3000+ processor.Can anyone guide me to installing some temperature/fan speed sensors like lm-sensors.I didn't find no suitable i2c driver in the kernel.

anarhistu, the k8n is compatible with the it87 i2c module. You will need to load the following modules -


and then run sensors, you can get rid of any unused temp for fan entries by editing /etc/sensors.conf
FYI my output on a k8n is:

Adapter: ISA adapter
VCore 1: +1.10 V (min = +1.42 V, max = +1.57 V) ALARM
VCore 2: +4.08 V (min = +2.40 V, max = +2.61 V) ALARM
+3.3V: +6.59 V (min = +3.14 V, max = +3.46 V) ALARM
+5V: +4.97 V (min = +4.76 V, max = +5.24 V)
+12V: +11.52 V (min = +11.39 V, max = +12.61 V) ALARM
-12V: +3.93 V (min = -12.63 V, max = -11.41 V) ALARM
-5V: +4.03 V (min = -5.26 V, max = -4.77 V) ALARM
Stdby: +6.85 V (min = +4.76 V, max = +5.24 V) ALARM
VBat: +4.08 V
fan1: 878 RPM (min = 0 RPM, div = 128)
fan2: 1713 RPM (min = 2986 RPM, div = 4) ALARM
M/B Temp: +26°C (low = +15°C, high = +40°C) sensor = thermistor
CPU Temp: +25°C (low = +15°C, high = +45°C) sensor = thermistor

Read the lm sensors installation guide for details of how to set it up permantently.

Good luck
