Thanks Trif/Xyzzy,
What I observed fits very well with the 12.5% off duty cycle. I have iterations set at 10,000 which displays the iteration times every 2hours+. I take all that to mean it switched from 100% down to 87.5% (or more) and back over a long period of time.
That is really great that the P4 protects itself up to 135C.
I wonder if the AMD XP1700 (and faster) do this?
In terms of heat management, maybe the extra cost, in general, of a P4 is worth buying over the AMD (I'm an AMD fan, except for prime95 work, but nuggets like this may will sway me towards P4's).
