As Jedi says, you should set it to your actual thread count. Forcing more threads than what you have will slow down your TPF.
Can't say what your 2600K will do, but I shaved a couple of minutes(it could have been anywhere between 2 and 6) of my TPF going from -smp to -smp 6 on my X6 folding a 6903.
The '-smp x' has nothing to do with what kind of work you get, what the AS looks for is the 'x cores detected' when you first start the client and by that determines what kind of work you'll get (bigadv or hugeadv), if the '-bigadv' flag is set ofc.
