does anyone know how to set these up in the motherboards Bios setup to enable 4Gb?

MTRR set to Continous.

Memory Hole Remap = enabled.

Is it possible to enable the tlb patch for my 9500 somewhere?

Hi Ghost,

Yes, I did check but there is nothing in the bios. I have bios 1604 so that should be OK. But to be honest....I prefer to test it without TLB patch first. It runs absolutely perfect right now. No problem encounterd anyway.
I was worried to have bought a crippled CPU but it is just awsome:-)
Too much hype about the bug.

Run a benchmark like Cinebench and write down your CPUs score. Flash to an earlier BIOS and run the same benchmark. Compare scores.

Biostar released a new BIOS for my MB that I flashed to and got almost an 8% drop in its CPU scores. So I'm assuming that it has the TLB patch. I flashed back to the previous BIOS I had and my scores returned to normal.
