That's working as expected. The CPU can't hit the top turbo speed when using all four cores. Also, Prime95 is so efficiently coded that using hyperthreads (which is basically two threads taking turns on the core) doesn't speed things up.

With regards to only one worker, I believe it will force that if you're working on very large exponents.
