Umm... I've yet to have a game stress all 8 threads of my stock clocked 920. Granted, maybe I'm playing the wrong games to accomplish this. Just haven't encountered a game that did this yet.

And for any game that would stress 8 threads... honestly I'd say it's likely not properly optimized to take full advantage of the cpu cores/threads.
