Thanks - that sounds like it's only seeing the ACPI kernel hardware sensor.  
This is a relatively new kernel feature which doesn't seem to be as advanced 
as the old lm-sensors yet.  Unfortunately the two appear to be incompatible 
and whilst both can be compiled into the kernel (or as kernel modules) only 
one or the other can be used as they seem to use the same resources.

Does anyone know if support for lm-sensors has been removed in V3.5.13(+)? 

Hopefully one of the devs might comment upon this.
