    I enabled hyperthreading on an X5DAE equipped with 2 3GHz Xeons. However,
    I ran PassMark Software's Performance Test with HyperThreading on and off.
    It showed MUCH better performance in the test with HyperThreading turned
    OFF. Why is this, and should I run with it off?

    I suppose if you want to run that benchmark all day you should turn it off.

    Try doing a typical day's work with the system with it off and then with it on
    and see if you can tell the difference. My dual Xeon X5DAE seems more
    responsive with HT enabled...
