I'm sure you already checked the logs for errors, but I'm curious - what
processor speed and what temp settings are you showing under PC-BSD 7?
Might try a quick script to grab the output from sysctl -a|grep cpu|grep
freq  and sysctl -a |grep therm every 60 seconds or so, and see what it runs
under PC-BSD 7 vs 8.

I know on 7 and 8 alpha my CPU ran at about 50% of full speed most of the
time, but on 8 Beta and 8 RC it runs at 100% all the time.

Failing that, since you mention it's failing even running without X, I am
curious what the logs show. There could be an ACPI issue, possibly?
Does it crash with ACPI disabled?
