It might be, for those motherboards that don't report any
information, that they simply don't have the sensors. Depending on who
the board is targeted at, adding thermal sensors may be seen by the
manufacturer as a needless expense. Most CPUs come with a sensor now, as
do most hard drives and that's probably seen as sufficient. Certainly,
most laptops I've owned have shown nothing of interest in lmsensors. And
with Windows (still, by far, the main target for motherboards) not
reporting temperatures natively, why would they bother?
