    As soon as I become independently wealthy, I'm gonna get me a Bulldozer. But, until then, I'll be reading everything pertaining to it on TPU :respect:

    Ture but the 2600k does it at lower temps and significantly less power draw.

    at least, its not totally like the phenom1 disaster...but similar. at least, BD is useable for something... PH1 was just utter crap.

    My single stage cooler is Vapochill LS stock (unmoded 2005 release), it has no chance to hold BD load @ 1.56+ Vcore 4C/8T. So I set C6 enabled in bios which in windows will idle @multiplier 7 (2093Mhz) and keep the heat load low before start benching.

    Actual CPU @ 5.39Ghz benched

    what is the power consumption at those settings? and what was the power with your 2600k with same parts? (doesn't have to be exact, rough estimate is good enough)

    Also would really like to know how your experience with gaming on BD was, once you've done some runs.

    60fps avg. in Mafia II benchmark (no PhysX). That's pretty good! ...I think.

    In terms of pure gaming, is BD what you expected it to be or unexpected?

    And which games from your testing has it really excelled in? Where you can see a noticable difference?

    I don't know.. It work.

    I've tested Mafia II so far, 60 fps avg high settings PhysX off. Is that good?

    I don't. I'm sure an Intel processor would be a better choice.

    While the 8 threads may help, the single core achetecture is definitely slower.

    So what benchmarks/games (I have Fraps) do you guys want to see? *Updated my system specs too so you know what I'm working with. I can do head to head bench's with the 2500K.
