I just did a quick search (very quick ) and i think the patch is different for each game as in eg. CoD2 patch now supports DUAL CORE procs.

I could be wrong though.

Then just leave it alone. Your 165 will still work just fine, that just optimizes Windows to take advantage of the dual cores.

I'm using the 165 in a build in the next month or two, let me know what you think of it.

Best processor I've owned yet. Great overclocker, and great for games.
