You need it if you want to use Cool n Quiet, but you dont have to use it.
You can enable/disable it in the BIOS.

What it does is to clock down and lower Vcore when the CPU has room for it, its totally transparent and doesnt affect performance, its only changing the multiplier when clocking down if I remember right.
Not recommended to have it enabled if you are clocking tho.

Sounds similar to what my Barton CPU has, PowerNow! technology. But I never really use it. It was designed for laptops to cut power consumption when the battery gets low.

Hope you enjoy your new system :)
