    why exactly do you want to be able to use hyper threading?

    Hyper Threading is a cheats way to speed up programs by exploiting a flaw in most OS&#39;s where the CPU fools the OS into thinking that there are 2 CPUS.

    The Hyper-Threading or Hyper-Transport is part of the CPU construction and can&#39;t be modified in any way since its internal.

    sorry, i wasn&#39;t asking what hyper-threading was. i&#39;ve done a bit of reading about it before

    i was asking because there aren&#39;t a lot of programs currently available that either support or gain real performance benefits from hyper threading technology

    You cannot enable hyperthreading unless you use a CPU which has hyperthreading capabilites hardwired into the chip, like the P4 3.06GHz HT.
