I recently upgraded my graphics card to a Sapphire Radeon RX Vega 56 Pulse 8GB and also updated to the Mojave 10.14.6. It works fine in general but I can't get any sensor readings from it. I have the following installed kexts:
AppleALC.kext
AtherosE2200Ethernet.kext
FakeSMC_ACPISensors.kext
FakeSMC_CPUSensors.kext
FakeSMC_GPUSensors.kext
FakeSMC_LPCSensors.kext
FakeSMC_SMMSensors.kext
FakeSMC.kext
Lilu.kext
NoVPAJpeg.kext
WhateverGreen.kext
HWMonitor constantly reports a temperature value of 127 which seems to be invalid. How can I get proper sensor readings? Is it possible to get more sensors like fan speed or other temperature sensors? Also I have more than 2 fans but only 2 fans are being displayed. I used to see all 4 fans (in High Sierra) but that is gone now.

I have the same issue.
You should go to insanelymac site and check out Slice’s HWMonitor kexts and use his combination. I tested last year and it went from 120 - 37 degrees. If you are getting a reading of 137 C feel the backplate “carefully” of the card it will burn your fingers if it’s really that hot. It should only be warm at idle. This will confirm that the reading is incorrect.

That worked. Thank you.
Here's a link to Slice's download, in case anyone is interested. (Read the readme file)
