CPU Throttling?

Can anyone give me some insight as to what it does and if its good to keep on while OCing? If so what setting?

It slows the cpu bus when a overheating condition occurs under full load. Default setting is 50%, I turn mine off.

Quite honestly, it's a good feature for 98% of people on PCs...
It protects the CPU from overheating, by slowing down the CPU when dangerous temps are detected... When Intel incorporated this into P4s core logic, most enthusiasts went nuts (angry). However, for the masses, they'd never notice.

On the other hand, if you surf these boards......
I have it disabled on all my PCs.
