More often than not on recent systems, negative voltages are not used in
the system, and not wired to the sensor chip. I guess that you wouldn't
see them in your BIOS setup screen either. So you can probably ignore
them safely.

Maybe that's something we could add to our FAQ, since it's a quite
common issue.

This is more strange and I can't explain it. Didn't you forget to run
"sensors -s"? Do you know which exact IT chip you do have?

Done. Thanks for the information.
