I noticed that my notebook cpu throttles when it gets really hot, even 
without cpu scaling stuff in the kernel. May that be the case?

Disabling throttling in the kernel wouldn't make a difference in my 
case, but I certainly _want_ my cpu to go slower before it fries itself 
to death.

Not sure if it has something to do with it ... but hey, even small 
lights might help.
