Is that right? Hyperthreading should be ON, AND Turbo mode?? I just read so many things which said they should be off(even in the Steinberg DAW setup suggestions I think). However seeing as it's you Freddie, I'm more inclined to go with what YOU say as your posts are always well informed. I also must confess most of the overload problems I had were actually to do with an overheating CPU (clogged fan) which I've since improved with a water cooled CPU fan (pretty cheap and works really well). Thanks for the post :)
You are welcome. About 10 years back turbomode and hyperthreading didn't work out with audio workstation.
The result were latency issues, crackle audio but that is just in the past now. Unfortunately it take years before people change back to the right settings again.
I think people need better understand why they make certain tweaks instead of make tweaks automatically because they found it on the Internet. A lot of misguided tips out there for sure.
I'm just trying to help so here is the correct settings for 2014.
Hyperthreading on the last 10 years in BIOS.
Turbomode on the last +5 years.
Activate it and you will see huge improvement compare having it off in BIOS.
Things that should be off in BIOS are C-state, sleep, speed-step. You can also go on and disable spread spectrum on both CPU and PCI ports. Disable spread spectrum can help especially if you plan clocking.
