Fedora 19: The laptop seems to be running cooler

I could be imagining this, but from what I can tell with my very scientific method, aka "feeling around the CPU fan," my laptop appears to be running much cooler under Fedora 19 than it did with F18.

For those keeping score, this is Fedora 19 with Xfce on an HP Pavilion g6-2210us with the AMD A4-4300M APU.

In an equally unscientific assessment, the hard drive seems no cooler than in F18.

But a cooler CPU/APU? I'll take it.
