    And thermal control should be done outside of a maybe crashed OS.

    What happens to your warranty if your device gets damaged because of a crashed OS ? Is your warranty
    void because you are using a non certified OS with a given patch level and non certified applications ?
    what the hell are you talking about?

      Devices that need help from the OS to not being physical destroyed are crap.

        And that's why they don't?.. If your parts are ventilated correctly, then you won't need anything else. These daemons are there to decrease the noise while still keeping the hardware cool enough.

          This isn't about not being destroyed Dibal, this is about restricting thermal output. Such as on a phone or Tablet where you don't have fans and probably have a very small heatsink the CPU would probably be fine with the heat, its more so Bout the person holding it. Or in mg case its about the Linux kernel and Intel oss driver not having as good power management as windows 7 and therefore I have to watch for overheats. this daemon would help take that risk away for me.

            this is not about physical destroyed. The hardware has protection for that of course.
            When those protections trigger, they trigger hard, and performance suffers a LOT.

            This is about avoiding the hardware triggers, by sacrificing a little bit of performance once things get hot... to avoid the much more severe performance impact of having hardware triggers.

            In addition, this allows setting the temperature below the point where the fan would come on (if the user so wishes) so that you can run silent etc etc.
