In all seriousness though, you should enable HT and push that chip further. You paid a lot of cash for it so why not run it to it's full potential?

+1, HT off= cheating.
For gaming, any I7 920-950 is already overkill.
An I5 750 at 3.8-4ghz will play any game smoothly (IE- not have a CPU bottleneck)
My 920 does 4ghz at 1.21v ht on, and takes anything I throw at it gaming wise without ever using more than ~30-40% usage. HT off I'm sure I could do 4.2ghz at 1.24v.
95% of games don't even use more than 2 threads. Buying an intel hex core for gaming is....pointless and a waste of money.
