All you have to know is:

CPU = Dont go over 55c
Video Card = Dont go over 100c
DFI lanparty NF4 Chipset = Dont go over 60c

Anything over 60C is dangerous to computer components.

CPU (Pentium D 930) 43C @ idle-- ive seen 58C under load
Vid Card usually runs about 10C over the ambient temp
MOBO... something in the 30C range

Not true, a lot of video cards idle at roughly 50*C, thus load will be in the upper 60s and 70s. CPUs should never break 55*C. AMDs should never go above 50*C. Intels are okay at 55*C. Motherboards should be only a little above ambient.

Here are my temps at idle:

cpu:36C
gpu:49C
mainboard:44C
Power/AUX:52C

By the way, what is Power/AUX?

^^^uhhhh, i dont get it.

Anyways. Im guessing PWR and AUX are the MOSFETS. Your ambient temps seem a little high to me. 44*C for the motherboard is high. Get some good airflow going.
