I don't understand how a quad core would be "under heavy system load", I 
suppose it is possible, I just haven't seen it.
I haven't seen mine with all 4 cores maxed out.  Even when I do a make 
-j4 it still is at about 20%-30% idle ( using top 1)  on all 4 cores.

When using cpu scaling and I have is set to run the core at 800 MHz I 
still have plenty of power as it never hits full rated speed, except on 
a build and then is goes full speed and back to idle (800 MHz) very fast.

Typical on the system with i686 system: KDE 3.5.10 with thunderbird, 
konqueror ( 6 windows ) and knode running is:

Running Slamd64 (multi-lib) is about the same except it's using all 8 GB
