Sorting out sensors


I've run sensors-detect giving yes for all answers. Now I have this:

$ sensors
Adapter: ISA adapter
Physical id 0:  +29.0°C  (high = +82.0°C, crit = +102.0°C)
Core 0:         +29.0°C  (high = +82.0°C, crit = +102.0°C)
Core 1:         +29.0°C  (high = +82.0°C, crit = +102.0°C)

Adapter: ISA adapter
+3.3V:        +3.34 V 
in1:          +0.96 V 
in2:          +0.03 V 
in3:          +1.00 V 
in4:          +1.10 V 
in5:          +0.74 V 
in6:          +1.05 V 
3VSB:         +3.33 V 
Vbat:         +3.41 V 
fan1:        2121 RPM
fan2:        1891 RPM
fan3:           0 RPM  ALARM
temp1:          FAULT  (high = +85.0°C, hyst = +81.0°C)
                       (crit = +100.0°C, hyst = +96.0°C)  sensor = transistor
temp2:          FAULT  (high = +85.0°C, hyst = +81.0°C)
                       (crit = +100.0°C, hyst = +96.0°C)  sensor = transistor
temp3:        +26.0°C  (high = +70.0°C, hyst = +68.0°C)
                       (crit = +85.0°C, hyst = +83.0°C)  sensor = transistor

I suspect temp1, temp2 and fan3 are irrelevant, while temp3 is my hard drive. fan1 and fan2 are CPU and video card, but which is which?

Is there a way to turn my suspicions into positive knowledge? Archwiki is not very helpful.

Re: Sorting out sensors

You can check at the lm-sensors website if somebody already sorted out the info for your mainboard. Other than that, I just do something CPU intensive like compiling and check which fan and temp readings increase, and do the same for the GPU, for example visiting this GPU pathtracing rendering example that only runs on the video card.

If our currency were not money but appreciation and acknowledgement for what we do for others, for the community, for the benefit of all, we would have paradise on earth.
