I am crunching on the CPU's as well (20GPU+ 4CPU). GPU WU times come down with higher CPU speed too, plus GPU WU may not be around forever either.
But my main reason was just down to stability. One of my old pair was broken (dead IMC) and every now and then they'd play up. These were too cheap not to take the risk.

IIRC, there was a topic over at [H] on it. One of the guys couldn't figure out why one cpu was hotter than the other. So he started swapping them around and only running one cpu at a time and disabling the other. Both cpu's ran the same temps in each of the sockets, but the rear socket closest to the i/o shield was the hottest by 5 degrees C.
Ah. Thanks for the tip, will go read up a little. I honestly thought they followed the same numbers as the PCB so guess I may check that for the other stuff like CoreTemp.
