Thermal Throttling?

Hey All!

I just picked up an Epox 8RGMi for a custom SFF rig I'm building. The BIOS includes settings for Thermal Throttling but sadly does not include an option for disabling it. It will allow me to set % from 12.5 - 87.5 I've read the manual & the write at Rojak Pots BOG but its still a bit unclear to me which setting would be best to maximize my OC's, anyone give me some info regarding this? TIA

Regards, Szandor

If you want to determine your max stable OC then disable it otherwise you may find yourself overclocked to a point which isnt stable but throttling downwards gives the impression you are. Of course this is only a concern if temperatures are high but it doesnt hurt to disable it completely.
