Default Disabling HT Technology?

Well because my steam games are single threaded (i think) would disabling my HT make it run better? (i guess emulating 2 cores takes processing power from the processor so by disabling this i'm guessing more power could be used for my supposedly single threaded games)


P4 HT 3.0 Ghz
2x512 Samsung Memory
Intel G945i Chipset
eVGA 7900GT KO
Crappy 80g HD
(trying to get )ePOWER 500watt PSU

I do believe that would be a bios setting. check fps before and after should not make a huge difference.

ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64

I do not accept support questions via PM
