Hi Jean,
It's really GREAT to see your mail !!

The chip is W83697F - that's what written on the chip.
I think it's the W83697_T_H_F chip..
I could not get it's data-sheet anywhere.. but i guess it's very similar to
the W83782d.

Is W83697_THF also ISA-only ?

I'm using lm-sensors 2.8.8

The temp2 and temp3 read as 68C and 16C while temp1 is movind around
27-32 range, which seems correct.
