You got it.

I guess your ADM1021 is in fact a MAX1617, which is hard to detect, as
the LM75 is. However, we have been improving detection for the lm75 and
the adm1021 families, so I'd expect that thing will be better with
lm_sensors-2.8.0. BTW, I'm a bit astonished that a non-LM75 chip could
ever be detected as a LM75 with the detection procedure we use. What is
possible is that you have both an LM75 and an adm1021-like chipset. Most
motherboards that use a LM75 use it as a secondary chip, and have
another chip as their primari monitoring chip.

Anyway, please let us know how it goes with 2.8.0.

170F is a bit hot for sure, you must have some serious heatsink/fan
issue. No wonder your system may be a bit unstable. And you really need
lm_sensors working on such a system ;)

Good luck with your hardware.
