 From the lm-sensors.org website:

"If you have an Asus motherboard, chances are good there is an ACPI 
interface to read your sensors"

http://www.lm-sensors.org/wiki/FAQ/Chapter3#Mysensorshavestoppedworkinginkernel2.6.31

So the official answer is "chances are good". :)

All I can say is it works on both of my Asus systems (P5QL PRO and EeeBox)
