Default Hyperthreading makes huge 3dmark difference

Ah found out whats going on here ...

i5 3450 isnt hyperthreaded. Also noticed that with hyperthreading, graphics - not physics actually takes a performance hit with HT on. My graphics score is what is really up there - its my physics score that is low due to lack of hyperthreading.

Have a look at this dudes posted results from turning HT on and off - a reall eye opener.

HT on
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 690 video card benchmark result - Intel Core i7-3930K Processor,ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. RAMPAGE IV EXTREME score: P23009 3DMarks
ht off
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 690 video card benchmark result - Intel Core i7-3930K Processor,ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. RAMPAGE IV EXTREME score: P20995 3DMarks

Notice how the physics score is way higher, yet graphics is actually lower - but the overall is higher due to the insainly high physics.
