Hans is probably wrong. The Super-I/O chip detection is very reliable
and I would ve very surprised if you do not have a Winbond W83627EHF.
As a matter of fact, this hi-res picture of your motherboard:

clearly shows a W83627EHF in the top-left-hand corner.

But indeed there's also a uGuru chip on the board. Bad luck.
