I'm going to assume this is a config issue since I've seen Mint handling it as one would expect. I could be wrong, though.

Basically, xfce4-sensors doesn't pick up much of anything (it apparently finds the NVidia temperature, but that's it.) lm_sensors shows the CPU core and controller temps, and gkrellm shows more than I care about -- so it's not a driver issue. Any hints on how to trick xfce4-sensors into actually paying attention to the data that's already there?

There is more then one source, there is /sys and there is /proc. Apparently your plugin is "looking into wrong places". Or in other words, your kernel is not providing the information suitable for plugin. My 2¢.

Code:
# find /proc /sys -name 'k10temp*'
/sys/bus/pci/drivers/k10temp
/sys/module/k10temp

and
Code:
# sensors
k10temp-pci-00c3
Adapter: PCI adapter
Tdie:         +34.4°C  (high = +70.0°C)
Tctl:         +61.4°C 

k10temp-pci-00cb
Adapter: PCI adapter
Tdie:         +34.4°C  (high = +70.0°C)
Tctl:         +61.4°C 

... but xfce4-sensors knows them not, despite this. And, yes,
Code:
cat /sys/module/k10temp/drivers/pci\:k10temp/0000\:00\:18.3/hwmon/hwmon0/temp1_input
35000

So since I've seen xfce4-sensors pick up the temperatures on a different system I'm guessing that there's a way to make this happen.
