Limiting threads to a game

So I recently got a new 8700k (Still working out my oc as of right now at 5.1ghz stable so far) and I have been setting up obs to stream. I have been testing @ 720p 60 frames medium preset. Someone mentioned setting the affinity of the CPU to only ~8 threads depending on the CPU intensity of the game and allowing all cores on obs. Will this give me any kind of improvements? I couldn't find too many results about this on the web. Thanks for replies in advance
