Both the BD chip and the pic of the SB were at stock speeds. They brought in the family dog and he ran a quick single thread of piss on each of them and they both performed about the same. Wet. So there you go, issue solved.
Coffee just came out my nose.
If Bulldozer is really not close to 2600k performance I'll be building an Intel rig in about 3-6 months.
