You're right, it does not have true thermal throttling (AFAIK only the
P4 does and it needs it!).  Perhaps it's because such old technology
dissipates <15 watts that a heatsink/fan is barely needed anyway and it
continued to work.  Anyway, I was not bull shitting; what I described is
exactly what happened.
