NetBSD always prints "25MHz" at boot time if it detects a 380. The number
isn't calculated. I have patches on my machine that calculates the CPU
speed and prints that. I'll send them to this list when I get home, and
maybe they can get checked in. (Hey Jason, wanna give me access to the
source tree??? ;-)

Sorry, I'm not a thermal engineer. I also don't know the pc CPU coolers.
So I can't really help. Use your best judgement.
