I have a 5.0ghz stable 3930k and I use a lot of software that is multithreaded so I usually leave it at stock however I have lately been streaming a lot and want to just have 2 cores at 5.0GHZ since the streaming software is single threaded. Power usage is a huge concern now since I am really broke lately and thus my question is, will the power usage be significantly greater with only 2 cores no hyperthreading than with all 6 going with hyperthreading at stock? If not I will setup profiles for OC and NON OC so I can easily switch back and forth.
