my goal is to match the performance of my old rig (4GHz) and i think i did with the 960T unlocked and set at 4.2Ghz. but ill settled for 4GHz.
yes, the i7 is faster with HT on. can't see the difference for everyday tasks, though. bench - i lose about 200 pts in 3D Mark 11. the thing is, i can't seem to oc my gpu with my current rig as high as the x58. plus the x58 uses tri-channel.

Unlockable: Yeah baby!
try this 4GHz setting for quad . . .
- go back to bios and set everything to default
- disable the following - C1E, Turbo, HT, Cool & Quiet, and if you have Turbo V - disable it.
- set your vcore to 1.38v or 1.4v (try 1.38 first)
- raise your Multiplier to 20
- the fsb should be at 200
- save and exit.
Watch your temp using hw monitor.
if that works, then turn on acc or unlock mode but you may have to bump the vcore around 1.42v (mine does - some others can get it lower).
