You could try healthd. It will format its out as HTML so you can monitor via 
webpage if you want. 

I have had the same rebooting problem on my 5.4 box, and it doesn't seem to be 
temperature related. If anything, its seems related to either network load or 
the driver of the NICs I was using. I have since changed NICs, and it hasn't 
happened again. At this point, the verdict is still out though.
