What does '/sbin/service cpuspeed status' say? Sounds sorta like you don't have
any cpu throttling in effect...

Comment 2 Eelco Hoekema 2007-05-15 21:54:44 UTC
[eelco@uyuni ~]$ /sbin/service cpuspeed status
Frequency scaling enabled using ondemand governor

By the way, using Mactels coretemp utility:
[eelco@uyuni temperature]$ sudo ./coretemp 
CPU 0: 59 °C
CPU 1: 59 °C
[eelco@uyuni temperature]$ 

It doesn't get much lower than that. It seems the fan only starts when the
temperature is at 72 degrees or more.
