Yup, setting the governor to "performance" sets it to full speed.

CPU/MB chipset internal.

That is correct too. Those who run portable applications on a lap top are
the most likely to run into this. The hardware is just not designed to run
full out all the time. The lap top is also more sensitive to dust for this
reason. A desktop machine needs to be kept clean as well.

GPUs are actually worse. There are lots of "fix you lap top by remelting
the solder on the GPU" tutorials out there. The gpu can run hot enough to
melt the solder connecting it to the MB. I don't know how much of a
problem that is for audio work where the GPU is not so busy as a game that
is doing whole screen updates/calculations all the time.
