This article benchmarks the difference, but just disable Cool n' Quiet and you should be good

AMD Phenom 9600 Black Edition Review & TLB Fix Benchmarking - Page 1 - Introduction

I hope you don't like World in Conflict though:

World In Conflict

YIKES!

The TLB fix causes an incredible 42FPS performance loss in the Minimum FPS of World In Conflict with the Phenom 9600 Black Edition - you read it right, the TLB fix drops the minimum performance by greater than 50%.

The Average performance "only" drops by 20%, and the Maximum performance drops by 35%.

If you like World In Conflict, DISABLE THE TLB FIX!

Ouch.

Is it that game specifically, or is there a noticeable drop in alot of other 3D games?

otherwise the drop range is 2-52.5% (that 52.5% was only in WiC though) but it averaged out at 14% Performance loss in gaming

After reading that article, I am not even going to bother with the fix unless, I notice that it crashes often.

I am getting a DFI board, and I will attempt to o/c it to around 2.5 - 2.6 or so. I should be happy there. Even with this bug, I firmly believe this is a major step up from my FX-60...

Because maybe his motherboard doesn't support Intel CPU's and he doesn't feel like buying a new one?

i would suggest to wait for the B3 stepping processors, which got delayed again to the summer. They r the high-end Phenoms.
