Do you have an idea of the running temperature of your laptops (CPU and GPU) ?

For my part, I'm trying to limit the CPU (intel) and GPU (nVidia) temperature under 73° C (actual data :+/- 1 % of time > 72 ° C). I'm looking for a safe long term temperature but I wonder if 73 ° C is too agressive (impact on the hardware lifetime) or too conservative ?
