External case temperature should always be below 27*C (80*F), with the best temperatures around 18*C (65*F). Internal air temperature should be around 40*C (104*F), except for heatsinks, which require lower temperatures.

As long as you're using fans, don't be worried until case air temperature exceeds 55*C(130*F). At this point, both fans and passive coolers will be useless, and only liquid cooling will be able to safely protect your components.
