I read the DSDT table so far I could see temperatures and fan speed on this notebook are handled by Emmbedded controller,
Perhaps it could be possible to develop some ACPI module like ibm-acpi for the ACER extras. It seems it has no ordinary chip
for HW monitoring.
(this should not be so difficult)
Name (CPUT, Zero)
Method (_Q80, 0, NotSerialized)
Acquire (MUT1, 0xFFFF)
Store (CTMP, Local0)
You just need to call right methods...
Maybe you can have at least some temp with:
acpi -V command...
