The LM90 chip and compatible indeed don't have this feature.

You can setup the temperature limits appropriately (set temp1_max, set
temp1_crit, etc.) What will happen when the limits are crossed depends
on your motherboard though. Many motherboards don't do anything,
meaning that the alarm is informative only (you just see ALARM in the
output of "sensors".) If you want something to happen on alarm, you
then have to write a little script checking the output of sensors (see
prog/daemon/healthd.sh for an example.)

As a side note, I would be surprised that you have an LM83 and an LM90
or compatible chip on the same motherboard...
