  1. What is it and what does it do?


    Shuttle An35n Ultra 400, XP3200


    37.5C? 50C?

    Don't know how to set this because I don't know what I am setting. No explanation in manual.

    Any help appreciated

    CPU TM1 or TM2 Throttling occurs when the CPU becomes 'too hot'. The CPU throttles down the load to decrease it's core temperature.

    get Throttle Watch to see if your computer is doing this:

    I'm assuming your mobo allows you to select at which temperatures your CPU throttles. Look up the reccomended temperature for your CPU and make your decision.
