I have an AMD II X3 435 cpu. Sensors-detect successfully detects the 
k10temp module is needed.

Some south bridges, CPUs or memory controllers contain embedded sensors.
Do you want to scan for them? This is totally safe. (YES/no): y
Silicon Integrated Systems SIS5595...                       No
VIA VT82C686 Integrated Sensors...                          No

Intel Core family thermal sensor...                         No

VIA C7 thermal sensor...                                    No
VIA Nano thermal sensor...                                  No

I also checked that it is loaded correctly.

[florian at errorkiste ~]$ lsmod |grep k10temp
k10temp                 2827  0

If I run sensors to get the temperature the output is just:

[florian at errorkiste ~]$ sensors
Adapter: PCI adapter
temp1:       +21.0°C  (high = +70.0°C)

21°C is impossible to be the correct temperature. The BIOS reports my 
CPU running at something like 36°.
The Kernel is: 2.6.33-ARCH
lm-sensors version: lm_sensors 3.1.2-1

I would appreciate any help. Thanks a lot!
