Hyperthreading would give you a nice boost if left on. If you have a decent cooler, the temps wont go up more than 1-2C.

will the stuck cooler is not good.
as soon you are starting to overclock you can see why.
my core i7 920 is at 45 as idel temp. and your should be hotter then mine. so i think i makes good sense.
dont know about the load temp. go tjek some benchmarks. you can campair your temps with the testers temps.
