Running hot

The answer to my Cold Start question I posed earlier:

I have seen this problem previously caused by the CPU starting on a low stepping and failing to step up due to temperature of the CPU. This was fixed by the vendor (not Dell) releasing a BIOS which started the CPU initially on a high stepping and then stepping it down following POST.
Care to suggest any alternatives?
