    I'd say:

    What you think about me is not my business.

    It would be more colloquial to say "What you think of me doesn't concern me".
    "none of my business" is not commonly used. The common idiom is "none of your business": What I think is none of your business. What you think is not my concern.
    1. is definitely wrong. “What you think of me is not of my business” is possible.
