Seems someone turned hyper-threading on via a Iwill mobo for a 2.4b chip ( http://vr-zone.com/#2742 ) . Mabey its possible for the TH7-II........not sure if the chipset would perform well thou but shes worth a shot for bois modders.
I read this on overclockers.com:

"What has been hidden from the user up until now is that Intel already integrated its Hyper-Threading technology into the Willamette core two years ago. Software developers were able to access this function right from the start for research purposes. It is not possible to activate HT on older P4 CPUs, because certain settings in these chips are permanently disabled."

Hmmmm. How can software developers access a permanently disabled function?

There have been a couple people who apparently have somehow "turned it on" by accident for a moment, which is something you don't find happening with the multiplier lock.

It may well require something like WPCREDIT, but I wouldn't give up hope on this.

would be nice though :)
