regular "nv" still gets hot -- I'll give text mode a shot - both cores are
running at 800mhz (lowest) ATM.

BUT -- I did find this:
http://kerneltrap.org/node/7749

"*the most interesting core change may be the dyntick/nohz one, where timer
ticks will only happen when needed. It's been brewing for a _loong_ time,
but it's in the standard kernel now as an option.*" Thomas Gleixner
explained a year ago how this could result in cooler CPUs and power savings,


Maybe I'll have to run a non-packaged kernel to remedy this one...
