I upgraded to an Aorus Xtreme from its Gigabyte Aorus Master TRX40 little brother in 2022, after purchasing one at the excellent price of $500 (about 50% MSRP).


There is both a ITE IT8688E for 6 temperature readings and 5 fans, and an ITE IT879XE for 3 more of each. Seven of the sensors are built into the motherboard, and two use external thermistors. The in-kernel driver will not recognize the 8688. Employ force_id=0x8688.
