All that is the kernel's job with the on-demand governor. The powersave

FWIW, the cpufreq script loads powernow-k8 on my system. Regardless of
your thoughts on power saving, it definitely steps down my processor
(Phenom II X6) and as a result my fan is much, much quieter.

Oh, sure. We need the cpufreq _drivers_ loaded, otherwise stuff behaves
terrible, no doubt about that. I mentioned the different _governors_.

What I meant is that the 'powersave' vs. 'ondemand' governor usually
does not save any power, it behaves worse. The kernel does its job
right, and does not need userspace fiddling with governors.

How am I supposed to keep my fan quiet under full sustained CPU load
without the powersave governor?
