Ok, heres my situation....


I have a i7 930 OC'd at about 4.2GHz....

I have two options:

Enable Hyper Threading but CPU operates at 4GHz

Disable Hyper Threading and CPU operates at 4.2GHz


What do you guys suggest? I'm not sure whether the 200MHz is worth it or not.

Is it faster to you? probably not by much, but depending on how much multitasking you do or how many programs you use can properly use 8 threads, HyperThreading may be a bigger speed bump.

So the best way to figure this out is through some kind of benchmark metric.... Is there any good free programs you can recommend?
