I am in the same boat, have a 12core 2.4. And my 5.1 sessions with a plethora of plugs and get the dreded: Pro Tools ran out of CPU power. Try de-activating or removing Native plug-ins. (AAE error -9173)

Running HDN with 40G of ram. Wanted to know, how much of a difference did you notice upgrading to a 3.45 GHz CPU?

Would doing so, help running more CPU hogging plug-ins?

And detailed info on your performance increase in mixing or plug count would be greatly appreciated.
