Not a Mandriva user but I am guessing lmsensors is being used here.
Run the command ' sensors '. See what it outputs. Notice the limits it shows.

Now more than likely if it is showing higher tempertures than the bios is showing then the /etc/sensors.conf file needs to be tweak to match your machine better.

Hope this helps.
