CPUTIN with NCT6776F is kind of problematic. It shows up wrong on many (but not all) boards.
On some boards, the displayed temperature even decreases as the CPU temperature increases.
There may be some magic configuration setting which need to be fixed, but I have not been
able to find out what those would be.
I have a new experimental driver for NCT6775F and NCT6776F at https://github.com/groeck/nct6775,
in case you want to give it a try. With this driver, it is possible to set the temperature sensor type
(1, 3, or 4). It doesn't help with my P8H67-V board for any of the possible settings, but maybe
you are more lucky.
