    They're a lot of fun you just have to be prepared for the heat they put out! You have a decent foundation with the CHV which is a plus.

    Need to know one thing: do i need the MS AMD FX hotfix for Win 7 for 8350 or not? The one that resolves the Win 7/Taskbar not reading properly the modules issue. Not in a hurry, can wait till March 10. :) Thanx.

    I never installed one and have had 0 issues. I think that may have been for the early bulldozers.

    it's a good idea it's not just to resolve the task bar issue there's also one for core parking the two you want are

    I had fun with my set up and got me to 4.5ghz for daily usage idle and load temps are still far from the roof but my pushpull hdt dark knight limits me along with the summer weather came in early. Got my hard earned moneys worth.

    My original target was the asus saber r2, would it be a waste if I get it sometime in the future?

    So the Piledrivers (8350/8320/etc....) do need these patches too; not just Dozers. Thanx Athlonite. Already downloading. :)

    I still feel they're unnecessary, you can just disable core parking and you actuall will get some benefit. The patch only works in certain circumstances and really doesn't have many benefits. My opinion anyway

    My 8350's are always running full load on all cores so they never have a chance to park! :p

    I will say that the FX-6200 and 8150 were a lot more sluggish doing lighter load work than the 8350's ever were..... night and day difference imho.

    I've seen the difference between the FX6200 and an FX6300 it almost like night and day

    yeah I don't think heat will be to much of a problem the ThermoLab Baram with push pull fan setup seems to cope quite well with heat probably also helps that the RV02 has an 180mm fan directed right at the HSF aswell

    I got my cores on full also, none stop OC'ed. No heat issues and no other issues I am aware of. Gaming seems to run smooth.
    If only AMD can further refine the FX 8350 such as a 8550 or something, because going from 8150 to 8350 was a nice bump in performance and stability.

    I'll put it this way Athlon, I bench continually and if I though there was even a remote performance gain I would be using them and I don't. Not sure if that's the answer you're looking for but that's my take on it.

    Cheers Johan I had already had them installed but was just wondering if they are now just a waste of space and time should I ever need to reinstall

    From my understanding initially at release of Bulldozer in "some" circumstances the some cores would remain parked, I think it was in some games for the most part. Since windows 7 is fairly mature now and the FX have been around for a couple of years I don't believe this is an issue. Even at that it was only sporadic in the beginning and only under certain circumstances.

    OK so that takes care of the Core Parking hotfix what about the Scheduling one shouldn't that be installed I don't remember MS putting out any other patch to solve this other than the Hotfix
