My fan was blowing a lot and the box was very warm until I realized that somehow I'd lost the settings that enable PowerNow.
I've reenabled it and now, after about 30 minutes of web surfing, etc (no gaming) the CPU sits at 36% and the temps bounce between 50-51C (I'm using the AMD PowerNow! dashboard to figure this stuff out).
If you're already doing this then disregard.
