Overheat Temperature?

I finally got things fixed thanks to all of your suggestions over the last few days, but I am wondering. My VIA Hardware Monitor says that my CPU Temp is 131 Farenheit (55 celsius), but it says that it is over the "Overheat Temperature" (122).
Is the overheat temp the same or is it relative to the system and can be changed? Can I type in a temperature to go by and if so, what?
Also, the System Hysteresis says 104 (Farenheit) but it says that mine is 80 (farenheit). What does this mean?
I have the 1.33 ghz Axia T/bird underclocked to 1.200ghz until I get a new fan.

  1. What MB do you have? My Abit KT7a-RAID had it set around the same amount, and I just changed the values in the hardware monitoring program.
    And no, 55 is not dangerous for a CPU.

  3. Just go into the VIA HM and change the danger and overheat values for CPU and system. The default is to low, I think.
