Don’t forget to update your servers with update 1 and keep in mind that if you choose to update your clusters by hand. That you patch all the servers and not leave the cluster is a split-patched environment!. You will not be the first that have cluster troubles by mispatching.

now that there is a Update 1 you can see different patch models from 800 Mb to 3 MB depends on the update status from the machine.

But if you don’t know the status of your servers and you don’t use wsus but patching from Microsoft update and there is no SCCM in place. you need some other tool to audit your servers. Write a Powershell script DSC or use a tool from codeplex Enter the PowerShell Patch Audit/Installation GUI (PoshPAIG).
