Dear lm-sensors team, 
 
I am experiencing fan reading/control problems with a Thinkstation D10 
under Linux (Debian). A W83627EHG chip (visible on motherboard - 
part number 816G9C28083030UB) gets recognized, but I have the 
following problems: 
 
1) RAM DIMMS get hot under heavy load, computer freezes 
 
2) cannot read fan RPM with "sensors" 
 
3) cannot set fan parameters (set fanX_div) with "sensors -s" 
 
4) first loading of module w83627ehf yields message:  
"Forcibly enabling Super-I/O.. Sensor is probably unusable." 
 
The information on my system and output from my trials is included 
below. 
 
Thank you very much in advance for your help.

This program will help you determine which kernel modules you need 
to load to use lm_sensors most effectively. It is generally safe 
and recommended to accept the default answers to all questions, 
unless you know what you're doing. 
 
Some south bridges, CPUs or memory controllers contain embedded sensors. 
Do you want to scan for them? This is totally safe. (YES/no):  
Silicon Integrated Systems SIS5595...                       No 
VIA VT82C686 Integrated Sensors...                          No 
VIA VT8231 Integrated Sensors...                            No 
AMD K8 thermal sensors...                                   No 
AMD K10 thermal sensors...                                  No 
Intel Core family thermal sensor...                         Success! 
    (driver `coretemp') 
Intel AMB FB-DIMM thermal sensor...                         Success! 
    (driver `i5k_amb') 
VIA C7 thermal and voltage sensors...                       No 
 
Some Super I/O chips contain embedded sensors. We have to write to 
standard I/O ports to probe them. This is usually safe. 
Do you want to scan for Super I/O sensors? (YES/no):  
Probing for Super-I/O at 0x2e/0x2f 
Trying family `National Semiconductor'...                   No 
Trying family `SMSC'...                                     No 
Trying family `VIA/Winbond/Fintek'...                       Yes 
Found `Winbond W83627EHF/EF/EHG/EG Super IO Sensors'        Success! 
    (address 0xca0, driver `w83627ehf') 
Probing for Super-I/O at 0x4e/0x4f 
Trying family `National Semiconductor'...                   No 
Trying family `SMSC'...                                     No 
Trying family `VIA/Winbond/Fintek'...                       No 
Trying family `ITE'...                                      No 
 
Some systems (mainly servers) implement IPMI, a set of common interfaces 
through which system health data may be retrieved, amongst other things. 
We have to read from arbitrary I/O ports to probe for such interfaces. 
This is normally safe. Do you want to scan for IPMI interfaces? 
(YES/no):  
Probing for `IPMI BMC KCS' at 0xca0...                      No 
Probing for `IPMI BMC SMIC' at 0xca8...                     No 
 
Some hardware monitoring chips are accessible through the ISA I/O ports. 
We have to write to arbitrary I/O ports to probe them. This is usually 
safe though. Yes, you do have ISA I/O ports even if you do not have any 
ISA slots! Do you want to scan the ISA I/O ports? (yes/NO):  
 
Lastly, we can probe the I2C/SMBus adapters for connected hardware 
monitoring devices. This is the most risky part, and while it works 
reasonably well on most systems, it has been reported to cause trouble 
on some systems. 
Do you want to probe the I2C/SMBus adapters now? (YES/no):

If you have some drivers built into your kernel, the list above will 
contain too many modules. Skip the appropriate ones!
