CoreDuoTemp is a handy menubar item that monitors an Intel Mac's CPU temperature (as well as CPU load and frequency, if you wish). You can also choose to display a small floating window that shows temperature, CPU usage, system uptime, and the minimum, maximum, and current CPU frequency. Finally, you can also install a Dashboard widget that shows CPU usage, temperature, and frequency (although it seems the temperature displays in Celsius only, unlike the menubar item and floating window, where Fahrenheit is also available).

I know there are many utilities out there that do this, but I like the simplicity of seeing a single number in the menubar (I don't have it show frequency or CPU usage).
