The Room Temp was 20 C. It doesn't mention the processor temp though.

Probably could have pushed the overclock higher if they disabled HT and all but 1 core; it would have ran a lot cooler!

Looks disabled to me...also that's not my way of overclocking, hyperthreading was created for a reason and I doubt that turning it off will give you an overall gain in performance.

Scratch that part about HT. Now I see, Core Temp reports each core is around 30 to 34 C.

I mean if the overclocker disabled all but 1 core, it probably would push the overclock higher because the processor as a whole would run faster; instead of 4 cores operating each at ~30 C, you only have 1 core.
