    Oh and before anyone mentions the out-of-tree nct6687 driver (you can find it on github if you search), yes I'm aware it exists. I just don't find it to my liking. It's very much a modified nct6683 anyway, and has code in it that in all likelihood wouldn't be accepted to upstream hwmon. I'd prefer to see nct6683 get fixed instead.

    Sigh, speaking of hwmon stuff that doesn't work, the MSI X570S Carbon Max WiFi has a Nuvoton NCT6687D chip with next to no kernel support. The nct6683 driver should support it but actually doesn't, because it fails to match the X570S Carbon Max's specific customer ID out of the box. And even after adding a macro for the ID the driver still requires an additional hack to make pwm control sort of work. And a bunch of other things are wonky, too.

    If anyone else here has this mb and wants to make nct6683 only mostly broken (instead of fully) then have a go: https://github.com/imaami/linux/comm...92b8931eee721f

    Btw: my dirty hack doesn't add proper pwm_enable attributes to sysfs. I just made the normal pwm attributes accept the special value -1 in addition to the usual 0-255. Writing -1 switches from manual mode to SmartFan mode. Values 0-255 will automatically switch to manual mode and set the requested pwm value.

    And then suddenly today after a kernel update the it87 module gives out fan speed reading again. After years of losing it. What a coincidence.

    You can try to get support added with the right information. See last section in readme: https://github.com/zeule/asus-ec-sensors
    I've followed those instructions, but it doesn't return anything useful sadly.

    Not that it's a huge deal for me personally. I set everything in the BIOS-interface and leave it like that, and I have a set of fan parameters I know are good for my system in a wide range of room temperatures and system loads. It's more out of curiosity that I've been eying the development of these drivers.

    It was never supported by asus_wmi_ec_sensors because the BIOS didn't support wmi at the time the driver was developed, but a BIOS-update (not sure which exactly, but somewhat recent) added wmi-support so I'm pretty sure asus_wmi_ec_sensors could have supported this board if it was added to the driver.

    Meanwhile, I don't expect the new ASUS_EC_Sensors will ever support this board.

    EDIT: I was mixing up asus and gigabyte drivers, guess I won't be ditching the it87 driver after all.

    They should split the driver up and concentrate on it doing only one thing, and one thing well. They could call it onlyfans.
    And with support for 18+ sensors, we'll finally catch up to HWiNFO64!

    I looks like someone is trying to add support for another X370 board (a Crosshair VI Hero WiFi AC) , if they get it to work for that chip, maybe, by fishing a bit around and tweaking some parameters, you could get it to work with your motherboard.
