My T60p is really unusable for anything cpu intensive under FreeBSD. Even
with the ibm acpi addons loaded and the fan set to it's highest setting it
only turns at 3700rpm, which isn't enough to keep it from shutting down due
to heat. (eg over 100C)
I'm interested in whatever cooling solutions people have...
