Intel D845PEBT2 and temperature monitoring...

Just on an off chance.. have you tried:
sysctl -a hw.acpi.thermal
and checked for any output?
The following little snippit taken from
the -hackers mailing list awhile back may
also prove informative... It's for a notebook,
but you get the idea.
#define KELVIN_TO_CELSIUS(t) ((t-2732+5)/10)
printf("tz0 temperarture: %d C\n",KELVIN_TO_CELSIUS(intbuf));
printf("tz0 crit temperarture: %d C\n",KELVIN_TO_CELSIUS(intbuf));
printf("AC Line status: %s\n",intbuf?"online":"offline");
printf("Number of battery units: %d\n",intbuf);
printf("Battery state: %d\n",intbuf);
printf("Remaining battery life: %d%%\n",intbuf);
printf("Remaining battery time: %d:%d\n",intbuf/60,intbuf%60);

As said by Napolean Bonaparte:
"Never ascribe to malice, that which is adequately explained by incompetence"
After being embraced by MS:
"When accused of malice, always hide behind incompetence".
