That line you quoted wasn't aimed at anyone, it was purely a humorous attempt to accentuate the "probably best to just wait" sentiment ;)

Any advice?! Should I disable hyper-threading and if so, how?

I've been running HT since 2004, 32-bit and 64-bit.  Leave it enabled.

Also, if you're running a hot chip:  https://goo.gl/2bmWkv  I've run 4 GHz on air, with this stuff   ;)

It took me a while to realise HT was hyper threading. HT to me usually mean high tension cable for your spark plugs, lol....!

 So okay another lesson, learnt, cheers.... :D  there's thermal paste and there's thermal paste. I bought HY150 for to do maintenance on my computers. This is the most expensive on ebay http://tinyurl.com/yblojrpw
