Hyper-threading wont disable.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
For some reason, my ASUS P8Z77-V motherboard will not disable hyper-threading. I went to into BIOS and went into advanced and disabled hyper-threading. I exited the BIOS and clicked " Save & Reset". When my PC booted into Windows 7 it still showing 8 cores. I checked the BIOS and it says Hyper-threading disabled.

I have updated my BIOS and updated my Windows

This is my current PC spec:

Intel i7 3770K
ASUS P8z77-v
AMD 9750
8GB Corsair XMS 3
650 XFX PSU

MSconfig->Boot tab->Advanced options->Set the number of processors Windows can use.
EDIT
Sidenote. Hyperthreading is actual physical hardware on the CPU die, so it can only be enabled-disabled on a hardware level

Yeah, I was wondering why that happened. I went to ASUS website and it looks like they have a new BIOS update. I will update my BIOS and let you know how everything works out
