Since you have an nVidia card, and the official kernel does not
contain the accelerated framebuffer driver for it (because it would
crash on some machines), you are stuck with the Open Firmware
framebuffer driver.  This in turn means you are stuck with 8bit color
depth on the console.  However, you can get higher depths in X video

More likely, your system lacks fan control.  Make sure the module
therm_adt746x is loaded.
