IT8720, I'll check when I'll be able to how it's visible by lspci/sensors, I 
don't know when it will be though, maybe today evening, maybe in a week's time

yes, I know, but these are the exact ones that are printed on the mainboard...
and besides CPU_FAN, they can be connected to any fan one wishes (northbridge 
is passively cooled in this mainboard)

because it's the Tcase temp of a CPU (temperature of an IHS)

I bet "Case Temp" would be read as ambient temperature by most people 
(temperature inside the computer case), making it Tcase should clear the 
confusion, especially when after putting "tcase temp" to google one does 
recive "C2Q/C2D Temp Guide" as first result and "Tcase/Tjunction/Temp 
question" as second

np

BTW, I couldn't use "compute" with "Core 0" and "Core 1" labels (I wanted to 
calibrate my core temperatures)
line:

 compute "Core 0" @ +3, @ -3

was completely ignored...
