Nothing shows up on one of mine.  Neither in dmesg nor envstat.

RAM: 2GB Corsair DDR3-1333 stuff.  Don't have the model # handy.

Interesting. Do you have an I2C bus on the system? If you do, the spd ROM should be accessible, and that GENERIC kernel should show both the old spdmem driver(s) as well as the sdtemp.

If you have the complete dmesg, it would be appreciated.
