    Default Disabling HT in x58 UD3R

    I know how to do it, it is just that when i do, the system will not even make it to the BIOS screen.

    Any ideas why would be greatly appreciated!

    Please update to the latest BIOS if you are not using it already.

    You can get it here >>

    Please use Qflash to update, do not use @BIOS. Here is a guide

    Anytime!

    Was you using an older BIOS then? Post back anytime if you need further help

    yeah that was the problem!

    quite funny, i thought that disabling HT would decrease temps by up to 10c, it actually increased it by 3 - 4c! what the hell! lol.

    ah well.

    thanks again

    Nice to see you got it working!!

    Temps will always vary a little no matter what unless you take some long tests and average them because your CPU is always doing something different.

    Did you compare new temps with this BIOS, HT and no HT? Just checking

    older bios temps when left idle for a while, ht enabled, could not disable it.

    system: 51 - 52c
    cpu: 36-38
    mch?: - 52

    updated bios temps, ht enabled

    system: 48 - 49
    cpu: 43
    mch: 48 - 49

    ht disabled

    system: 49
    cpu: 45 - 46
    mch: 49

    all temps recorder in the bios.

    glad that two of the temps have gone down with the updated bios, just don't understand with the cpu, especially when i turn ht off as the opposite should happen!

    Personally I wouldn't pay much attention to the CPU temp as reported by the board and programs such as Everest etc. Use CoreTemp or RealTemp to monitor actual core temperatures. Thei7 DTS sensors are supposedly more accurate than the Core 2 ones.

    It may just be that rather than temps going up, the BIOS has had the way it reads the sensors altered or re-calibrated. If not testing the old and new BIOS readings on the same day, and with as little time between each test as possible (allowing for board cooldown), ambient temp fluctuations may alter results. When idle, things like the Windows prefetcher can access the CPU and hard drive at random times, making an idle comparison unfair. It's load temperatures that count. Idle temps are meaningless unless they are way off, in which case one should check things like how secure the CPU heat sink is etc.

    The core temps will be interpreted the same regardless of the BIOS version. Note that BIOS version can effect core temps, and I'd be more likely to trust them as an indication that one BIOS is "hotter" than another.

    Ahh, thanks for the small temp report. A few things to keep in mind, as said above CPU Temp is not what you need to worry about, but Core Temps are. I use Everest to monitor these but there is many programs you could use.

    Another thing to keep in mind is that all energy saving features and Vdrop/Vdroop does not kick in until you load windows. So it would be best to compare Core temps with or without HT from within windows.

    And BIOS Versions so affect temps as well as stated above, some use more voltages to certain things and set other things that may affect temps. The also vary in just how close they apply actual voltage at any given setting, so this will vary things as well. Also the vdrop and vdroop amount can vary between BIOS's as well as the mount needed for any given voltage to provide stability. BIOS Versions also can vary in just how accurately they pickup any given temp, so comparing between them would be unadvised.
