[lm-sensors] Where to download drivers?

Can I know which distribution you are using, are you using any custom
kernel (compiled by you),

Generally, most distribution kernels will come with these drivers
(coretemp, etc) enabled as modules.

So, lm-sensor tries to load these modules, if there is no such modules,
I think it assumes that you have compiled statically,

Also it would be useful if you send the output of the following,

1. uname -a
2. sensors
