You're welcome.

Not sure what you mean by that.  The adm1021s are probably reading your
CPUs, one each.  Run a CPU intensive task for a few minutes and see which
temp sensors go up the quickest... those are attached to CPUs.  The others
are probably reading a board temp somewhere.  Your board might not have
anything at all connected to temp3 on the w83781d... so ignore it by 
modifying sensors.conf.  (try 'man sensors.conf')
