  1. Pretty much. In theory the 3770K might be a higher-binned chip and will overclock further, but really it's just luck of the draw whether you get a golden chip or not, regardless of which SKU you buy. You're paying an extra $110-$130 for better odds at getting a higher overclock. Cheers, Mike
  2. Turning it off won't make that much of a difference. It will let you overclock higher but not that much higher. More of a case of an overclock not quite being stable with HT on but stable with it off. You've also got to consider that you will have just removed the reason for going for an i7 over an i5 (unless you're willing to spend more in the hopes an i7 is a higher binned chip and will clock a bit higher). Cheers, Mike
