Try a multitude of other games as well. Then post some more findings.
Shrugging right now, because the most conclusive thing is that I had fps stutter since I bought my machine, as soon as I put hyperthreading off...boom...gone.
Another game I tested was Insurgency Sandstorm, also better frame performance.
I am going to disagree with comment about R6 Siege, it does press CPU pretty good, and within that act you get to see the pitfalls of your CPU.
Yet...it's not even 20% as buggy as Arma 3. R6 is one of the smoothest games I have played, as far as stability. I only had game crashes when I was not supplying CPU with voltage, and that was just a couple handful of them throughout 4 years (nearly) of me playing this game.
R6 benchmark is very consistent, so is the game.
I went back to Hyperthreading, because I like to open a gang of tabs in chrome, and that makes a difference for my operation, downclocking the ram actually helped too. I put it back to stock clock but with tighter timings.
Seems conclusive enough, just not worth it for me, because I don't play 24/7 and I do other tasks, which require hyperthreading. It's inconvenient for me to go into BIOS between those tasks.
