Re: HOWTO: Fancontrol
If you are not getting all your sensors identified, you may have a newer motherboard chipset with the repo version of lm-sensors cannot see.
To get the latest version of lm-sensors go to lm-sensors.org and click on the Devices Support Status link
In the blurb at the top of this page you will find a link to download the latest version of sensors-detect. It is a standalone script so no compiling needed.
Once downloaded, make it executable and run it e.g.
With any luck you will then find your sensors and be able to run pwmconfig.
With the correct chipset sensor module defined I had to go back to the Devices Support Status page and grab the source code for the module, a quick and easy make & sudo make install & sudo modprobe nct6775 got me up and running. (It was nct6775 in my case, may be different for you)
This worked for me with an Asus Z87M-PLUS mobo with i5 core 4670K processor
