If you force modprobe of it87 module to behave as chipset 0x8721, you can see
that you can see temperature of the sensors, the speed fans and voltages (not
correct values for voltages)

Here  you can see more users with this problem (generated by Asus). The
only thing we need to have a functional driver is the datasheet of this
'confidential' chipset made by ITE for Asus motherboards. This is the standard
answer you get if you ask for datasheet:
"Thank you for contacting ASUS Customer Service Department Iberica.
We regret but issues of confidentiality, we can not
provide the information that tells us.
Iberian ASUS Customer Care"
Is there anything that we as users can do?
