On the heatsink is not really problem (with an amd64, nt a Prescott),

in the bladesof the fan might e a problem ;-)

But it is not always clear *where* are located the sensors.

Most if not all motherboards since the Athlon XP came about, have had a
temp sensor under the cpu socket I believe.  My old A7V board (first
Asus socket A board) had an external sensor to put on the heat sink,
while later A7V series (with newer chipsets and support for newer
athlons) had the sensor under the socket somehow.

The Athlon64 has thermal sensing diode on the chip.
But unfortunately it is not used to monitor the temperature.
The A8V use a thermistor under the socket to do that, you are right. But it seems that the thermal diode is used for safety purposes: it shut down the system is case of overheat. (I've found this information on AMD site, in the supported motherboard section but surprisingly I've not found this information at ASUS's).
