8rda+ CPU thermal throttling question

Hi,

what is this option exactly doing? is it like CPUCool or CPUidle keeping the CPU cool and saving current ( money ) ? It doesn't lower my temps from what i tested ( maybe coz my watercooling is alread cool enough )... But it would be great if it really can spare me running extra idle-ing software....

It is just to reduce the load on your CPU while idle, but sometimes it can cause more problems than it solves. Disable it, you don't need it.
