I've had trouble with lm_sensors not separating cleanly between chip sections,
meaning settings of a previous chip section are picked up for the chip section
you're currently editing. As the main board hardware isn't going to change, it's
best to replace the contents of /etc/sensors.conf completely, but keep the
comments at the top. Like

   mv /etc/sensors.conf /etc/sensors.conf.orig
   mv sensors-XXX.conf /etc/sensors.conf
   rm /etc/sensors3.conf
   
   mv /usr/sbin/fancontrol /usr/sbin/fancontrol.orig
   mv fancontrol-XXX /usr/sbin/fancontrol

Do not paste any text into the file from the browser screen!
Download the file instead.

The fancontrol script is effective only with a correct /etc/fancontrol config
file. Create one by running pwmconfig, and add a THRESHTEMP setting with a text
editor.
