I never had to check/uncheck BD Prochot option using ThrottleStop, ever. I have G53JW. It is 7 years old. Is it really essential, how can we test whether we need it?

Prochot controls CPU throttling. Unchecking it will disable the throttling feature in the CPU. This is used for some games which may run your GPU/CPU too hot to where they throttle and you take a hit in performance. This is something that happened A LOT with me when I had a G52. The 15inch chassis can cause throttling due to the limited space. G7* series laptops dont run into it as much as they have a little more robust cooling solution, the slight 2 inch difference is enough to make a large improvement in cooling.

Run CoreTemp with it disabled and see what you hit with something like furmark or any other CPU demanding program. As long as you stay under the "Tj Max" that is listed on CoreTemp, then you are fine, which is the maximum thermal threshold that the processor is designed to handle. Asus sometimes sets the threshold much lower and the CPU thottles when it doesn't have to. That's why throttlestop was made.
