Well, there has been a lot of discussion, but truly, this patch only claims to work, but actually doesnt make much of a difference.

It can only help you increase your torrent speeds as soon as you start it, because you have more open connections to which seeds can connect to.
If you look into the status of the torrent, you will see a "Waiting" value.
This can be decreased using the patch. However, after about 10min or so, it wont make any difference.

But one thing is for sure, it will considerably decrease your browsing speeds and to some limit decrease your downloading speeds as well because a large bandwidth will be consumed in just keeping these tcp connections open.

Even I tried it, after applying the patch, Windows does give a warning. But after that, my computer never shut down quickly, so i decided to revert to original value of 10.

Savvy!!
