Rebuilding Large Assemblies only using 15% of CPU? Why not 100%?

Am building a large assembly (with sub assemblies) to the extent that my system lags whenever i need to create a pattern for a subassembly in that main assembly.

 

Checked my processor usage and it was only clocked at 15% maximum. Am using a W7000 AMD graphics.

 

Can't solidworks utilize the full processor amount? Or did I spec my processor wrongly? See specs below:

 

Windows 8.1 Pro 64bit

Intel i7-4770 OC'ed to 4Ghz

AMD W7000 GPU

16GM RAM

Samsung 830 SSD (Plenty of space left)

 

Thanks in advance.
