Can i ask what the reasoning behind the games you picked? Why not test F1 2010/11 or Bad Company 2? those games are known to scale well with additional threads. Or how about Shogun 2 or Arma or GTA IV, games that are known to be some the most heavily CPU dependent games around. I really hate the games you guys choose to test, like left for dead 2 AND team fortress 2? you include two games that run on virtually the same engine? Far Cry 2/ Dirt 3/ Street Fighter 4/ Crysis 2... FOUR console ports? World in conflict and X3 maybe would be good choices if this review was written 5 years ago. So basically the only result that matters is Crysis and Civ 5 which both seem to be GPU bottlenecked near the top.

Drives me up the wall that you spend so much time testing games that don't matter.
