So you want 4 physical cores to produce the same heat as a technique which doesnt exist in the physical?
+1 I'm crunching with an FX-8 and an i7 Hex core (among others) and I just noticed that CPUID HW Monitor reads all 8 cores on the FX but only the 6 physical cores on the i7
OT- very interested in a 95w FX-8 Vishera but the price needs some work.....
