Why would you turn it off if at all?

Thought it's always a benefit to have it on.

It's a significant benefit for some loads and usually doesn't impair performance, but a 4c8t CPU at 1.3v will be hotter than a 4c4t CPU at 1.3v in the same load. For a video encoder, you might see 90c with HT on and 78c with it off with the same cooling, though the 90c will get like 22% more performance.

I don't believe in "good enough"~!!

240hz / gsync / low persistence is AWESOME
