P4 Thermal Throttling causing damage?

If you run your P4 with Thermal Throttling active for long periods of time (your P4 is running too hot and it throttles the CPU speed to keep cooler) can it cause permanent damage to the core?

All A is B,
Some B is C,
Therefore, some C is A.

Logic 101, no linkie

OMG; okay, nice, but how does it prove that damage can be had from throttling?

All throttling is heat (given condition)
Some damage is heat (established)
Therefore, some throttling is damage.

high heat does reduce the lifespan of CPU and components.
Since throttling happens staring at about 75°C I think, that means high heat...

fuzzy logic is right indeed.

are there no articles or online documentation which supports these claims?

75°C is not "too high" FYI

When the processor is subjected to throttling continuously from high temperature, the likelihood of damaging the processor is very probable.

A bullet proof vest will stop one, two, three bullets not hitting on the same spot and sparing your life; continously getting hit on different spot will kill you eventually. That is for sure.

If there are no articles, reports, claims as such could be -

1) Novice users did not even know why their Prescott die; let alone reporting the death.
2) Experienced users will have taken care of the throttling; and not continue using the system because he doesn't benefit from a slower and irratic response system.
3) Geeks will never say something like this unless the purpose of the dead processor is an attentional act.

Rather, the no article on the occurance that we know; doesn't preclude the nonextendence of the result. Unless, we disagree the fact that heat will and can damage processor.

I agree if the CPU overheats, but the P4 starts throttling 15° before it reaches "dangerous" temperatures;

running at 75°C vs 40°C will not be noticable in the long run (CPU will live longer than you, most likely, other components failing before that.. also most likely)
