    Same here, nothing out of the norm. These are sensors mounted inside that iStat reports back on. The main one to watch is the CPU.

    The 32 degrees seems silly

    Yeah that is normal for the SSD. Rev A or B it doesn't have anything installed to measure the temp of the SSD the way a HDD does. If you switch it to Celsius it will show 0º all the time.

    What's a good, very small memory footprint, app for checking temp stats on a mac?...I fooled around with something when Tiger first came out (it was a dashboard app) but it was quite the memory hog.

    Better yet, how could I get this through the command line?

    I use iStat Pro, it takes up very little memory and it's free.

    Do you have experience using an alternative? If not, may I suggest it could also be impoper technique in applying the paste. Too much leads to greater conduction of heat. Here's a great tut that helped me out:
