so i wanted to oc my I7 920 C0 further but my temps were already pretty high 74 on full load. But now i tried turning HP off and the temps dropped by 8 degrees. I was wondering if hyper threading makes a huge difference in games, video converting, transferring data, vantage benchmarks etc.?
video converting - if optimized for it yes (x264 uses it really well)
transfering data - probably not.
vantage and 06 - yes. (HT adds about 12 percent. if you can increase your clocks more than that then its worth it,)
