Default Component cooling question?

This is more like a survey but still is a question.
What do you say the best temps for keeping components are?
This is for a temp/fan controller I have and would just like to get the experts input on this.

Example- the hard drive, I don't want it to get too hot but yet I don't want a fan running on it all the time.

Hdd safe operating temps- between ? and ?
Cpu safe operating temps-
Chipset safe operating temps-
Case safe operating temps-
Power supply safe op temps-

Well I can say for CPU's that you don't want to get above 80C, and it is safer to even be under 75C.

30-40c for hard drive.
40-50C idle no more than 65-70 under load

Are you insane!?

CPU's shouldn't be getting above 60C with MAYBE the exception of a prescott CPU...no way in HELL should it get even remotely close to 75C muchless 80C.....GPUs yeah...CPUs no.

a 3700+ SD should be staying in the 50's..70C full load is STILL way too hot.
