Hyperthreading

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Should I just disable it? It just causes me to have problems with my games, like a 10 decrease in FPS.

If it's really decreasing your performance in games, then go ahead. You could probably achieve a higher overclock if you disable it as well.

That's odd, if you primarily just use your rig for gaming, then yeah, disable it. As JSDempsey said you can usually achieve a higher OC with HT off.

Just be sure to accommodate your voltage if you turn your HT off. As it prolly won't need that much volts at that speed without HT.

As for it decreasing your performance, I have seen a few games where HT does decrease FPS by maybe ~10 frames at most?

How do you know that you its the HT that's slowing you down?

I played the games I played the most and did a comparison with HT on/off. And I did the Crysis and Metro bench.
