At least they seem to be working on yours

Can anyone tell me how simultaneous hyperthreading affects a systems performance when just running basic OS, Game//Launcher and maybe Discord? Would I be better to leave this option disabled if only doing basic things? Currently running OCCT burn with it disabled and performance seems to be the same but 10c less on thermals?

Not the auto stuff! Manual straightforward OCing.

That auto stuff is too crashy!

I prefer to disable "SMT" ..aka "HT" on AMD. YMMV

Clock higher and stays cooler? Gimme! Gimme!

Smt is perfect for your use case. It just fills in the empty clock cycles in a physical core with the tasks from a secondary process, like discord.

Its will run warmer because the core is being more effectively used. 100% on a core just means a task is using every time slot on the core, not necessarily 100% of the time slot. Smt takes a seconary task and fills in the time slot leftovers.

Performance in games is dependent on the programming optimization for higher core counts. Old games were optimized for 4 or less. New ones 8.

I recommend just leaving it on. Temps are good, core speed is good. Toggling it on and off for specific tasks would be annoying. After a psu improvement to something in the 550w range, you will be set for a ling time. A little overkill on the psu is good for the efficiency of the psu and your power bill.

What exactly is this PSU possibly going to do beyond losing the ability to send enough electrical pixies and shutting itself down?
Well, tbh, I just suffered reboots with the POC PSU. I used it to build a semi-gaming comp and sold it off.

It would not run an 1100T + 5870 at the same time, but it would run an OC'd Phenom II X2 550 Oc'd + a 5850 well.

And that's how I sold it..with Crysis included. With a 5850 1gb.

Thanks boss, definitely prefer running w/ smt on as the experience is more smooth and with current 4ghz OC thermals don't go much over 40c at full load.



Currently testing specs: 4Ghz OC, 3200 on ram 16-16-16-28-46 [email protected] Also disabled some windows based timers that may have been crashing previous OC attempts, so far so good..
