Precisely what i said then, with the exeption that Ubuntu is - it seems
- doing the job very well and not breaking anything. ;) Some people have
had problems with scaling and throttling in ubuntu, and i therefore
assumed you where to.

I dont think you have a problem in the first place. As long as your
temeratures are all right, you are fine - and Ubuntu is doing a swell
job of fan throttling and cpu scaling.
If you find the voice message annoying, you could just disable it in
your BIOS settings.
Happy hacking. :)
