Unless you are both mechanically and electronically adept and willing to go to great lengths that will void your warranty to cool a laptop down this is about as good as it gets

When I have some troublesome package to compile (eg firefox or webkit) I use this script with slackware-current to limit the maximum cpu speed to 1.8GHz on 8 cores (if you use it, alter it according the number of cores you have and whatever maximum is appropriate):

---------------------

Code:
#!/bin/sh

count=0

while [[ $((count)) -lt 8 ]]; do
  echo setting cpu $count to 1.8GHz
  cpufreq-set -c $count -u 1.8GHz
  ((count++))
done
