Don't monitor any of it. There is are a ridiculous amount of posts on the forum devoted to temperature issues--which are actually non-issues. Macs are designed to be able to handling running hot. If they run too hot, the Mac will notify you.

When was the last time you heard a Windows user complaining that there machine was running too hot? They don't. Why? Because they don't get a temperature gauge. It's a neat feature--but it seems to cause a lot of confusion.

I second this.
Don't bother monitoring any of it.
Temp monitors only seem to lead to obsessive behavior and unnecessary attention to the computer's heat levels.
