Why do i need this?
Client is running a Threadripper and pushes it pretty darn hard to compile scientific data. It will crunch data for long periods and crashes. My suspicion is that it is overheating. When compiling its using all available threads to do this and takes a long time. I want to see the temps and possibly run a cron job to send temp data to me while it compiles data.

I have Elrepo setup and updated. However, According to the wmi site the module only compiles with kernels 4.19 or better. There appears to be only two kernels available via elrepo - 5.8 MT and 4.4 LT.
Compile error with 4.4LT:

I have not tried the 5.8x MT kernel because the last time I tried to install it on the production server I could not install the Nvidia driver for it. Evidently it was too new. I did load the 5.8 kernel in my centos7 in virtualbox but then guest additions would not compile for me.
Looking for options and advice if anyone has the asus-wmi-sensors module working on a threadripper.
