CPU = <65 is best, tho the actual limits depend what you use to monitor temps. lowest you can manage is best when overclocking.

GFX = <80 Modern gfx cards run HOT on stock cooling - ATI's X1800XT's and HD2900XT's seem to run especially warm

HDD = ~35c (although its been suggested that what matters more is consistant temp, rather than hot/cold. basically aim for warm so bearings + lubricants are at working temps but not hot.)

mobo: Chipset <45, mosfets/pwm <80c

everyone will have their own comport ranges.

for all but hd, coldest = best.
