No viable options to date although you may want to keep this in mind. Apple has made changes to the firmware and system management control so that you may safely utilize the performance you paid for. You may not notice it now although when Leopard is released, you may appreciate the maximum performance of your Mac with the current updates, as it is now able to run the more robust and demanding operating system of the future.

You probably have a rogue process causing processor usage and ultimately causeing yur processor to run at full speed 100% of the time. I would suggest using a tool like MenuMeters…
… and see what sort of usage you get at idle. You should realistically have less than 4% idle usage.
