We use a custom plugin for MRTG to do this; the latest Cisco MIB shows that temperature is reported for each and every module, so there is no individual OID to graph.  Instead, we walk the tree, and graph the highest.

The plugin is attached (it is in Perl); this plugin also works with Nagios.  This is the template we use:

Target[temperature]: `check_ciscotemp -M -H hostname -C community`
Title[temperature]: Device Temperature
MaxBytes[temperature]: 100
PageTop[temperature]: null
LegendI[temperature]: cisco:
Options[temperature]: gauge growright noo
Ylegend[temperature]: Centigrade
ShortLegend[temperature]: C
Legend1[temperature]: Device temperature
Legend3[temperature]: Peak device temperature
SetEnv[temperature]: MRTG_INT_DESCR="Temperature"
routers.cgi*Options[temperature]: nopercent nototal nomax scaled fixunit
routers.cgi*Icon[temperature]: temp-sm.gif
routers.cgi*InCompact[temperature]: no
routers.cgi*InSummary[temperature]: yes
