Looks nice! I really like how perfect that exposure time is - shows that the fans are moving but you can still see the individual blade - awesome!

Thanks, that was a bit of purpose. Not fully stopped, or not fully moving.

Before I open the CPU and Motherboard that just arrived, I want to be sure I am not being premature.

Does everyone think, for gaming, i5-2500k >= Bulldozer?

Depends what Bulldozer model, what game, etc.

In some cases the i5 2500k and 1090t are on par with eachother. It depends on your graphics settings and resolution.

I honestly think that Bulldozer and the i5 2500k will be competative for the price. For me it's not the CPU I'm after as it is the motherboard.

Sure, my B55 is just fine for me for gaming still, and maybe Bulldozer will be better than the i5, but the Maximus IV GENE-Z is only for Intel right now. I'd be happy to see an AM3+ model, but so far no dice.
