    I bought a system with intel DG965RY motherboard year ago, and still no support for its
    O/B sensors in linux.

    Can I ask again, when you expect it to be released.
    At least intel should release documents how to access the QST sensors.

    I know that HECI is first step for that, but it is not enought to read those sensors.

    I Really hope there are good news,
    Best regards,
