This may be like stating the obvious to some, but remember that
load is not the same as cpu usage.

The load is the number of processes waiting to be run.
They can be waiting for cpu, but also for disk I/O.

I've seen loads of 700 and up on busy systems. That is also
about the moment top doesn't work anymore, so you'll have to
use `who` or `vmstat`.
