No clue, but it's gotta be in the negative numbers since people run phase change at -45C without such things happening.

Happened to Tom though when he had -196C with liquid nitrogen though lol

Yeah there's been a lot of talk that ABIT motherboards give out dodgy readings.... not sure whether your board is ABIT or not

Hard drives can be permanently damaged in temperatures below -10 celcius, altough it depends on hard drive..
But I wouldn't recommend below zero temperatures for hard drives..

CPU's can get very cold before they are damaged, actually they run way better when very cool. (50-60 Farenheit) Instead of the normal 100-130 degrees Farenheit. No worries, you wont be getting that cold to hurt your CPU.
