People with 24 cores or less are having more success with BFS (Brain F*** scheduler) and Tear's "Affinity Wrapper" also known as Kraken that he posted on AMDZone Frontpage forums.

For AMD psychos like me with more than 24 cores, only the Kraken is showing better performance. BFS is not helping because it doesn't scale well past 24 cores (seemingly).

For Sandy Bridge, loading up Ubuntu 10.10 as per this guide is a good start, and then adding the CK patches for BFS shown here and then the kraken should be a big WIN
