HT on or off? What can I do?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, well I wanted to ask you how should I leave the HT option, on or off? I use my PC to play games, but also for recording and rendering videos for youtube.

How should I leave it?

i use my computer for basically the same stuff as you, i have mine on. I just like it, I donno. Something about the extra cores, i feel like it helps rendering a lot.

For the difference in performance you'll get that is actually beneficial to games, it's pretty useless. Unless you get a higher stable clock.

But it's not helpful in all games, whereas in multithreaded applications such as Adobe Premiere you're better off leaving it on.

Well, if you just game and do some benchmarks, to see if there's a difference, if there isn't then disable it, your pc will run much cooler if HT is off.

Oh yeah you're right Thanks for reminding me that >.<.

For now I'll leave it on off, when I get my WC kit I'll turn it to off.

Thanks to all anyways.

If you're running some multithreaded apps then HT on will play nice, but
if you're running some benchmarks turning HT off will improve the results.


If you turn off HT with 2600k then it's better to get 2500k =)

There is really no reason to turn off hyper threading, especially with a SB processor.

Turn it on, do what you normally do with it. Then turn it off and see if you notice any differences. If you don't, just disable it to save power and have lower temperatures.
