i7 HT Question,

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've started to begin my overclock on my i7 920, But do i really need hyperthreading? I only game on my pc, i don't do any rendering or anything else really. I'd much prefer it if my gaming performance could reach its max.

So question is, Should i keep hyperthreading on or should i take it off?
Get myself a lower voltage on my core and reach a higher speed..

Sorry if this has already been posted, had a quick look, couldn't find anything!

You could benchmark it, but I would bet on most games hyper-threading doesn't really help.

It shouldn't really make a huge difference taking it off though.

I would say that i does not hurt to have it ON. Maybe if you are doing some extreme OC and need to lower the TEMP. then you should shut it OFF. My self I like to keep it on, my CPU is 24/7 at 3,4ghz. Max that I could get out of it was 4,02ghz. But I didn't try to hard .
