    How many users with good stability enabled hyperthreading?

    This is addressed to users who do not complaint about stability of GS 3.04.
    Did you find that anything changed when HT enabled in BIOS?
    Is it true that HT influences latency and how?
    As I found that HT was one of instability factors in v.3.01 I disabled it, but I have impression that overall speed of machine was also somehow lowered (could be just subjective). So, I wonder whether it is worth to enable HT and what are real benefits if it.

    Why not just try it and find out?

    I have no idea whether there are advantages with HT, but I've had not a single problem with it enabled; using v. 3.04.

    In fact, all the ballyhooing notwithstanding, GS3 is one of the most troublefree and stable audio applications I've ever used.

    I would definitely enable it and see. It was one of the loudest complaints, and a lot of work was done to fix it from what I have heard. I'm running AMD, so can't give an experienced answer.

    Nothing hurt by trying, if you have a few moments to do so with no deadlines looming. If it doesn't work, and you do some low-level crashing, then probably the worst consequence is that you'll need to reboot, turn hyperthreading off, and let Windows churn a while on its way up to clean up the mess. If you wanted to be absolutely foolproof about it, just Ghost or back up everything, and knock yourself out.
