Intel 945 class -- it's one of the first to get KMS and the support is 
excellent by now.  I never ever get slow graphics (although I don't play 
games much... IIRC extremetuxracer works fine...)

Actually, my fan mostly didn't speed up, instead the temp (if this is 
real) got hotter, so I manually adjusted it up a bit (via some 
macbook-fan-specific mechanism), but maybe it's the same thing (macbook 
linux are long known to run the fan a little slower than might be nice, 
by default, anyway).

Check your battery life.  My battery life isn't noticeably lower than 
before, which makes me doubt whether more energy is actually being used 
(and correspondingly turned into heat).
