I purchased a i7 980x EE, with 12Gb Ram to run the Prime 95 search. What settings do I use to maximally coordinate the CPU speed (of 3.33, without overclocking) with the 6 cores + 6 hyperthreading? On a 2 x 2.8GHz, the search for my test number [2^(72000000)-1] takes 75 days; on this i7 980x EE, it is taking 14.5 days. So either the cpu is working at 4.0GHz x 6 core or the cpu is working at 2.4GHz x 12 core. What can I do in the worktodo file management?

I don't follow. What exactly are you trying to achieve here?
