More ASRock and ASUS motherboards will have functional sensors with Linux 5.16

0

Updates to the “HWMON” hardware monitoring subsystem have landed in Linux kernel 5.16 and with that comes sensor support for some additional ASRock and ASUS motherboards.

Another ASRock ID (0xe1b) has been added to the NCT6683D sensor chip driver. There was already an ASRock ID present in the driver but this additional ID is used by some of their motherboards. One of the motherboards specifically named with this patch was the ASRock Z370M Pro4, but it’s likely that many other ASRock motherboards will now have working sensor cover.

Meanwhile, ASUS WMI support has been added to the NCT6775 driver. This change allows a wide range of ASUS motherboards to now have functional sensor support. The long list of ASUS motherboards initially supported by this change include:

– ProArt X570-WIFI CREATOR
-Pro WS X570-ACE
– PRIME B360-PLUS
– PRIME B460-PLUS
– PRIME X570-PRO
– ROG CROSSHAIR VIII DARK HERO
– ROG CROSSHAIR VIII FORMULA
– ROG CROSSHAIR VIII HEROES
– ROG CROSSHAIR VIII IMPACT
– ROG STRIX B550-E GAME
– ROG STRIX B550-F GAME
– ROG STRIX B550-F GAME (WI-FI)
– ROG STRIX B550-I GAME
– ROG STRIX X570-F GAME
– ROG STRIX Z390-E GAME
– ROG STRIX Z490-I GAME
– TUF GAMING B550M-PLUS
– TUF GAMING B550M-PLUS (WI-FI)
– TUF GAMING B550-PLUS
– TUF GAMING B550-PRO
– TUF GAMING X570-PLUS
– TUF GAMING X570-PLUS (WI-FI)
– TUF GAMING X570-PRO (WI-FI)
– TUF GAMING Z490-PLUS
– TUF GAMING Z490-PLUS (WI-FI)

Great to see a lot of new ASUS motherboards supporting sensors with this change now in Linux.


Support for desktop motherboard voltage / temperature / fan speed sensors has always been one of the issues in Linux with the lack of vendor fixes and sometimes the specs / datasheets on the sensor chips being hard to find.

These additions and other support improvements landed via this hwmon pull.
