CPU Thermal-Throttling

Does anyone know exactly what this option in the bios does?
by default it is set to 50%.
what happens if it is disabled?

i believe that the % u set it to is how much it'll slow ur cpu down to once the cpu temp reaches the throttling point. so if u set it to 50%, it'll cut the cpu frequency in half in an effort to cool itself down. if u disable it, then even if the cpu temp goes past the throttling point, the cpu won't slow itself down.

i think it should only be a problem for oc'ing if ur cpu temp reaches that point (i don't remember the exact settings). if u keep ur cpu temp below that point, there shouldn't be a problem.
