you dont need any component of your pc to be running at ambient temperature. in fact, without high-end cooling (phase change, TEC, LN2) its not possible. air/water cooling just helps dissipate the extra heat created by a pc, they dont eliminate it. all you really need to do is keep your cpu below ~60*C and your gpu below ~70*C (i think)
