I want to upgrade my CPU from a 2.8 GHz Celeron to a 3.06 GHz Pentium 4 HT, and I need to know if this mobo will support Hyper Threading technology. HP website does not state it does and there is no option in my BIOS screen to enable Hyper Threading technology. I didn't know if that option would show up only if a HT enabled CPU was installed or not. My mobo is a MSI MS-6577 and I would love to get a new mobo but reinstallation of Windows may not be feasible as it is tucked away in a hard drive partition, factory access only(thanks HP). If anyone knows if my current mobo is compatible with hyper threading or where I can look to verify this myself as a Google search was fruitless, I would be very grateful. Thank you all for reading this.
