HT off and 1.5v seem like very prohibitive compromises in order to run at 5.4 GHz. But dude's an enthusiast.

I'd think 8/16 at slightly lower frequency would net overall better performance, though.

I am not sure where the 1.45v number is from, though I have heard it a lot on this forum. I am moreso concerned with condensation on my rig than long term cpu degradation... lol.

As for no HT, it allows running higher MHz, which for the games I play, improves performance (they do not use more than 8 cores/threads).

For those programs preferring more than that, I use my 7980XE
