Very unlikely, as both are Super-I/O chips and it doesn't make sense to
have two such chips on the same board.

The it87 driver supports several devices of the ITE IT87xxF family, but
not the IT8702F. That's a rare chip, which only offers fan speed
monitoring (as far as sensors are concerned.) We don't support it yet.

The IT8702F wouldn't give it to you, even if we had support. What makes
you think that this relatively old motherboard actually supports
temperature monitoring? Does the BIOS display temperature values?
