You can set the preferred profile: left click on power management 
widget, that green battery icon n the systen tray. 
I am used to set the 'powersave' profile, to keep the frequency at the 
lowest level, thus keeping the cpu from high very temperature values.

You can also customize profiles, (yet fixing frequency values is not 
allowed) by clicking on 'configure power management', on the right side 
of the power management panel.
