Your answer was:
I'm not exactly in the same boat but maybe I can help. I've a FSC Amilo Xa 3530 also with a Turion X2 Ultra ZM cpu and I can confirm it's getting really hot. After a Windows upgrade the fan controller didn't work properly so I wrote my own. Then I've tweaked the heatsink and removed the bottom case and bought a laptop cooler. When I max out the fan speed with my tool the cpu stills overheat (100 degree) when I stress the box but I make it harder to the cpu to reach the critical temperature when the bios performs a thermal shutdown thus I can use the full potential of my laptop (performance mode). I've wrote linux kernel module as well. Maybe my documentation and my source code can help you to fix your problem. You can find all information on my website: http://www.chihoang.de/code-schnipsel/amilo-xa-3530.html.

Coming to the answer:
- It's an answer which goes oh, I had something related try this - it may work, but I can't guarantee
- It's a bare link to your site. If your site goes down, the answer becomes useless
- Following the links to your site, gives me bunch of shell scripts. Not really sure what to do about that,
There's a program for Windows, but you claim:
I'm not a professional Linux or Windows or OS coder at all but most of the time I use Linux, so you can imagine that I've a hard time to learn all this tools in Windows and you need a lot of them to build a kernel driver and a systray application
Not every confidence inspiring, considering that the program is a Kernel mode driver.
Hence it was converted to a comment.
studiohack has also outlined the reasons why it was converted to comment:
I understand that you're offering your program as a possible solution
but the bulk of your 'answer' is a narrative of things you've tried in
your own situation, but it is vague and the way it is written, it is
not very easy to understand what you mean. Converted to comment as
to allow the post to remain in some form, rather than deleting
Perhaps if you would improve your readability and clear up some vague points, I/another mod will consider undeleting. Explain more
about what your script/program could do for the OP, etc and make it
clearer what helped and didn't help
