Default Why does OpenBSD run so hot?

So I got OpenBSD installed on a MacBook Pro and noticed from the start (default install) at the console login screen, if I just leave it that way for a couple minutes, my laptop gets hotter and hotter. And I can feel a burning sensation when I touch the case. As opposed to booting the native OS X, it runs much cooler and I don't feel heat emanating from beneath the keyboard up into my hands while I'm typing.

Is this a hardware thing? OS X runs much more apps by default and they are more memory/CPU intensive (I think) compared to the OpenBSD default install, so I've been inclined to believe it's some sort of hardware thing but was wondering if anyone more knowledgeable might be able to speculate on what's going on here.
