pwmconfig not working, missing module?

Hi, i wanted to change the fan speed with pwmconfig.

i did the sensors-detect command several times and rebooted.
i have a Asus P5Q motherboard with a W83667HG chip

i guess the right driver for this chip is 'w83627ehf'
however the kernel logs saying:
systemd-modules-load[2555]: Failed to insert 'w83627ehf': Device or resource busy

pwmconfig output:
/usr/sbin/pwmconfig: There are no pwm-capable sensor modules installed

sensors output:
