I have a datasheet, which unfortunately I can't share. I never had the
time to read it, but as far as I know, the monitoring part is
compatible with the -A variant, while the automatic fan speed control
isn't. So a safe approach would be to only enable monitoring and
disabling the fan speed control interface.

No need to copy and paste the wiki, we can read it directly ;)
I've added your request to the wiki.
