Just to give everyone an update on my situation:
It turned out I had a bad fan on the CPU, apparently the motor seized. I
ordered a replacement and finally installed it earlier today. Everything
appears to be running fine even the CPU utilization goes up. I also
installed ports/sysutils/mbmon to monitor the voltage and fan RPMs. I
must say, this is a very handy tool.
Thanks to all for the help!
