This really isn’t needed. Design limits are 70C on the low end (Raspberry Pi FAQs - Frequently Asked Questions <https://www.raspberrypi.org/help/faqs/#performanceOperatingTemperature>).
I’ve had a Raspberry Pi (B, B+, 2 & 3) outside on our deck porch, in a fully enclosed case, no air flow, in 95F+, and internal temperature was fine when compiling software for Gentoo, with the load > number of cores. Working the GPU, with video out or using the camera interface for H.264 encoding added a more heat, but it was still well within design limits.
Temperature can officially be monitored with this command:
Or more simply, divide `cat /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone0/temp` by 1000 for the temperature in celsius.
