So how do you get the 2645594 patch?  no download links

Oh now they have the download links...

You need to go to the url that the person who wrote out the article meant to link to but didn't. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2646060

You then need to click the "View and request hotfix downloads", select your version, provide an email address and they send you a link to it...

Or click here,

http://hotfixv4.microsoft.com/Windows%207/Windows%20Server2008%20R2%20SP1/sp2/Fix391262/7600/free/441280_intl_x64_zip.exe

If there are two patches, I haven't found the second, but the article refers to it.

On your URL, it asks for the username and password.  I got the email but it didn't provide anything.

Did for me as well, clicked it a second time not using my download manager, and it downloaded. No idea why.

Once again, another MS Hotfix article with no links to the actual update code / files....

Very good news for the bulldozing people, maybe i'll pick up a FX- 8170 if they actually release it now :-)

I can't find the actual download link for either version at the KB page, but I need the x64 version

The url for the first link directs you to the second link. Just a fyi.

Hoping this helps out, my FX-4110 has been wanting to spread it's legs.

Awesome!! Will be installing now.

New benchmarks please! :-D

We are indeed working on benchmarking it again as well as Intel's new Core i7-3820 too...

Gordon, what's the word on those benchmarks? Any improvement? I have a FX-6100 and I hesitate to apply the hotfixes if there isn't an improvement.

3820 should be great for someone that wants to build a 4 way sli gaming rig and has no need for a hexacore. Looking forward to that review. I love my 3960X, but it'll be nice to know that I can build another x79 rig for lans on the cheap
