Yep, I used the same addresses from the ticket and it's working well,
all sensors are showing up - good to know how to find them myself
though, oh and I didn't have to do the
i2cset 1 0x2c 0x4b 0x40
i2cset 1 0x2d 0x4b 0x40
as it says in the sensors.conf on the 941 ticket, the fan speeds are
correct without doing that.  Setting that actually causes them to read
much lower than they should be. cheers, -Dan
