i was talking with Martin Peters (Vcool authors)
he says that he has used w83782d datasheet for asus as99.... chip 
it says that 
"The temperature data format is 8-bit twos-complement for sensor 1 and 9-bit twos-complement for 
sensor 2/3."

so if sensors reads only 8 bit from sensors2, beh this is the cause of wrong value and of
"2" factor :)
