It's not that detrimental to gaming, but it does lower performance. Not just for gaming, but also for any non multi-threaded apps. When you use HT, each physical core acts as two logical cores. Running two logical cores on one physical core lowers the performance of each individual logical core. In non multi-threaded apps, or apps which only support a max of four cores or less, the drop in performance due to HT can't be made up by the extra logical cores since the app can't use them.

We have yet to see the true potential of HT, imo, for the individual user type PC.

So, I look at it as having another trick in the bag, but certainly it is not needed. I like having the choice though. The funny thing is, some people wouldn't dream of disabling HT, even if it is limiting their raw MHz.

*cough*ChickenInferno*cough*

Etc.

It is more an attitude thing I think, because once you get into hardcore stability testing, you want to achieve stability at the maximum possible load, that the cpu can be put under.

I am flexible about it, but I do have this feeling, of like looking over my shoulder, right before I disable HT, to see if anyone is watching.

If you go with that RAM you should be fine with 4GB cause on that board they go in the grey slot's which are the farther from the cpu dimm slot's.If you add more later they will most likely hit your cooler because of the tall heatsink's.That is a good lookin build tho.

needed a massive vcore bump (was 1.32v @ 3.8ghz) for this to be stable but i still have great temps (temp pic from occt linpack) so this is now my 24/7 setup.

I'd go for the Cooler Master Hyper 212+ if you're not gonna get a TRUE or Megahalem. Best performance per $ cooler, better than the Dark Knight in my experience.

Nice "1156" club thread! It took me a while to read through it. I'm still working my overclocks and I've encountered some stabilty issues (prime error) at higher overclocks. I've got two more i5's coming in to test... maybe one of them will turn out to be a "good" clocker.

Welcome to the overclock.net. This thread is pretty good with lots of information. Good luck with your OC'ing!

I should put some of the stuff on the frontpage... Anybody want to help with that? I've given up my LGA-1156 overclocking guide until I get my i5, my P55 FTW is giving me too much trouble. I think I've got to RMA it or wait for a bios update.

You should add me. I left my i7 860 at 3.9GHz @ 1.378 vcore, RAM 9-9-9-24-2T 1866MHz.

I'll take a screenshot when I get home.
