Oh wait. It gets better :-)

I am not sure how correct these numbers are but I've enabled AMD's

I'd believe so.

nothing.

# acpidump -dt | egrep -i 'TZ|thermal'
acpidump: RSDT entry 3 (sig OEMB) is corrupt

Now this ^^ error might also suggest something is wrong.

amd_fx8350.asl.gz is attached.

By the time I collected everything,

# sysctl dev.cpu | grep temp
dev.cpu.0.temperature: 14.0C
dev.cpu.1.temperature: 14.0C
dev.cpu.2.temperature: 14.0C
dev.cpu.3.temperature: 14.0C
dev.cpu.4.temperature: 14.0C
dev.cpu.5.temperature: 14.0C
