Thanks you for your quick response and the hints. That worked quite well!

The module is working for me on 5.1.2, however I have seen some problems with the packaging script /DKMS where a module built for an older kernel is reused. I think this is an issue with the script, which I want to fix, but for the time being a complete uninstall/reinstall fixes it:

  • uninstall the asus-wmi-sensors-dkms-git package
  • run "dkms status" to check the status of installed dkms modules
  • Remove /var/lib/dkms/asus-wmi-sensors/
  • Remove /usr/lib/modules/extramodules-ARCH/kernel/drivers/hwmon/asus-wmi-sensors.ko if it is present
  • check for any stray modules (sudo find / -name "asus-wmi-sensors.ko") and delete. These may be left behind if you have ever installed from github using the makefile
  • if you are using an aur helper like yay, clear it's build cache.
  • Reinstall asus-wmi-sensors-dkms-git

It seems the package has some problems with kernel 5.1.1 Asus ROG Crosshair Hero VI @Bios 7002

@electrified sorry for the delay. 1. thank you for the hint. my V64 is now hwmon3 2. it's now running nice with xfce 1sec Crosshair Hero VI now -> [supported] thanks again :*

@ruben2000de I've made some changes to improve the performance. Is now working for me with psensors, XFCE sensors applet etc on 1 second interval, although YMMV.

Glad it now works for you.

  1. The numbering of devices is dynamic, adding this driver will probably have changed the number of your GPU. It's probably now hwmon3 instead of hwmon2. You are better going through the path of the graphics device i.e. echo 100000000 > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/hwmon/hwmon?/power1_cap (this works for me with a single RX480)

  2. Unfortunately reading from the WMI sensors is quite slow...1 seconds update might be too quick. I am using Freon gnome shell extension with 5 seconds update ( without issue. I will try with the XFCE plugin when I get a chance.

nice. now I have all the sensors. thanks a lot. (after month testing many other ways) Crosshair Hero VI seems to be supported :) (kernel 4.19; 4.20) but, now I noticed things that stopped me using it quickly 1. now suddenly my everyday command "echo 100000000 > /sys/class/hwmon/hwmon2/power1_cap" gives "no permission" (in root shell) 2. if I display via xfce4-sensors-plugin (1 sec update) xfce freezes after a few seconds

@ninjapepper Elmor produced a modded BIOS with it added in ( but there's not been an official release with it. Hopefully Asus will include it in a future BIOS revision, however ASUS WMI development seems to have stalled so not too hopeful :(

Never mind looks like the Zenith bios doesn't have WMI
