hi again, i upped the mhz and now it shows 2.6 on pc mark.how do you tell what tempreture the cpu is running at?

Is it worth enabling hyper threading?and if so how do i go about that ?

the pc is an optima which i think is a custom ibm but i am only guessing there, when i bought it i did tell them what i wanted put in it, as in ram, cpu ect and have just replaced the gforce64meg graphics card with a radeon 9600.

Thx again
