I still use windows 7, do I still need the microsoft hotfixes kb2646060 and 2645594, when installing an FX4300?

I've just got an FX4300, a friend tells me that if I still want to use Win7 then I must use the two hotfixes above.

Microsoft have killed the links on both.  I wonder if they are still needed or is this microsoft shoving people towards windows 10 again?

Both links still have the download, you have to request them by email. You don't HAVE to install them, but they can give you a 10% performance boost.

Well there's nothing on the other end when I try. Why doesn't someone actually download them and post them for those who need them?

There is an AMD update KB in the updates I downloaded.
