Please change from percentage to number of CPU threads.
Use at most 75% of the CPUs
becomes:
Use 16 CPU threads

Not everyone has greater-than dual- or quad-core boxes. 'Percentage' covers the spectrum: BOINC easily does the arithmetic to produce desired result...

This preference is also a boinc thing, not a cpdn thing. One would need to convince the boinc programmers that that would be a smarter way to go. (It actually changed from choosing the number of cores to a percentage in the preferences quite awhile back.)
