Yeah it does. 65-70 degrees C for frequency-core throttle respectively I believe.

I've set mine to 80-85 though that is NOT a recommendation!

I am on stock kernel, tried it and then ran the antutu benchmark, at 27% the phone restarted and the N was changed to Y after booting the phone.....any idea why the phone restarted?

thats because of the code, not the device. samsung sets it up how they want it, just how google sets it up how they want it. but its not a bad thing. i run my device with throttle disabled, but i dont care about heat. if google made it not throttle, all we would be reading about is how hot the nexus 5 gets. and it gets pretty hot with throttle on!

you hit thermal shutdown. its really easy to do with antutu, even with throttle on. why did it reset it, did you save your edit or did you just change it and exit?

I did save and exit.
edit -did it again and restarted the phone and it again changed to Y ......looks like google has done some hard coding

oh, i misunderstood the first time. it doesnt stick after a reboot. after a reboot you have to disable throttle again. there are kernel control apps that do it as well, i use the trinity kernel toolbox to disable thermal throttle usually(but have to disable it after every reboot).

Everything in /sys "belongs" to the kernel and is set by the hardcoded values in the kernel when the system is rebooted. This is why we need to use apps or scripts to change the /sys values after (or at) boot

Strange, I looked at my nexus 5 and this file is already N... I have a stock 4.4.2 with a gravity box, and it still have thermal throttle...
Somebody help me...
Thanks a lot!
