    Will do, thanks.

    As the bug report states, it's not likely to be fixed.
    it's actually ironic, all of users over on r/linux_gaming were telling me that I absolutely must get a motherboard with a Nuvoton branded chip or I wouldn't be able to get any temp readings whatsoever, at all, from anything. I'm not criticizing them because it was advice given freely and in good faith, but I found it really weird at the time that alot of regulars of this forum (yourself included if I remember) immediately debunked that theory, and have proven to be correct on a number of levels where a lot of users on Reddit were misinformed.

    I mean purely as a point of interest, is it just that certain misinformation gets spread around specific online communities and then just becomes 'common knowledge' that everyone parrots? weird!

    EDIT: you can try it on a LiveUSB
    Good idea, will do.

    People don't come here to socialise. They come here because they have a specific problem that they want to solve, or because they want to help people solve their specific problems.

    People do participate in other online communities to socialise, with all of the social dynamics that implies: shibboleths, competition, rivalry, and so on.

    We also don't get paid to be here, so we don't need to come up with outrageous or controversial things to attract clicks and ad revenue.

    I'm sure there's plenty of stuff that we don't collectively know here yet, and there's definitely plenty of good stuff elsewhere, but there are also other dynamics at play than pure information.
    None but ourselves can free our minds

    You do have a better chance with Nuvoton over ITE. I think once you use the acpi flag, you will see good results.

    ITE has some issues. The out-of-kernel version of it87 was better than the builtin one. But even that was held back by lack of data sheets and docs, and the person maintaining it got tired of it: https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pa...x-Driver-Axing

    This is pretty much what I'm interested to know, I went back and edited the post with everything I have found out here and posted a few screenshots with some pointers to help people on their way who come across it in the future. I guess that's all I can do

    I totally accept what your saying, I'm referring more to the majority of the posters in this thread who were stating that if someone buys a motherboard with an ITE chip with the intention of running Linux, they will never ever be able to get any temperature readings whatsoever of anything. Not just saying that motherboards with an ITE will not receive the same level of support.

    It seems some users choose their motherboard based heavily on this
