My System Specs

So here's the verdict. Vantage still scales at higher thread counts - but like you said, the CPU score doesn't really seem to matter much at all.

12C, HT off - CPU score 35628, GPU score 4360 --> P5585

12C, HT on - CPU score 44501, GPU score 4302 --> P5557

(This is with everything stock: 2 x X5679s and a GT 240)

So even though the CPU score is significantly higher with HT on, the randomly higher GPU score during the HT-off run results in a higher overall score.
Think you can overclock? Then show us what you got!
