So, Harmy you have a first gen dual core i5 with hyperthreading... If you're not trying to do anything else on your computer while you have the encoding going, I have to wonder if you'd get better performance if you turned off hyperthreading in BIOS. Hyperthreading has some benefits for a user trying to multitask on a less than fully utilized CPU in that you don't have to wait as long for something you're doing to get some CPU time, but if there's something that you want give full CPU usage, hyperthreading can be bad in that it will forcibly take CPU access away from a busy process so it can let a less important process have some CPU. By impeding the CPU intensive processes, the whole thing could take longer. It is not usually a problem, but in the right conditions it can be.
