ASUS P7H55M-LX running with integrated graphics
Core i3-540 OC'd to 3.5GHz without messing with Vcore (iGPU is on ofc)
One crappy HDD, low quality 400W PSU and one box CPU cooler


So what do you think, should i stop oc'ing? And more importantly, are these temperatures dangerous?

it could be just your case temps. im not sure where your temp sensor for that motherboard is but its most likely do to airflow. my motherboard temp is never above 35c. i wonder what your vcore temps are

Sometime the reading is inaccurate, you can get other software to verify temperature. Like this "speccy"

Set the i3-540 to the normal speed and check the temp again, maybe the OC cause the high temp.
