Dell Shipping 8400 w/Pentium 4 Stepping E0?

Can anyone who recently purchased an 8400 tell me if the Pentium 4 is
at the E0 stepping? According to Tom's Hardware Guide, this stepping
of the Prescott core adds some desirable features: Execute Disable,
Enhanced Halt Mode, and Thermal Monitoring 2.
http://www.tomshardware.com/cpu/20041115/

The above referenced article describes how to determine the stepping
by visually inspecting the retail box or the CPU itself. The stepping
can also be determined by running SiSoft Sandra, or a free utility
called WCPUID (wcpu330.exe). Get it here: http://www.h-oda.com/

I'm about to buy an 8400 (probably at 3.4 GHz), but I'm willing to
wait to get the E0 stepping. I may just wait until the Pentium 4 6xx
series with 2MB L2 cache is released (projected to be this quarter),
as I beleive it will include these features from the get go.

I may be wrong, but I think the processor you are looking for is the one
with the "J" in the name as in Pentium 4 540J processor.

Chuckles and HillBilly,
Thank you both for posting your CPU information. HillBilly, when did
you purchase your 8400? It appears Dell began shipping E0 steppings
sometime after early December (at least for the 3.2 GHz CPUs). If I
buy now, I just might get the E0 stepping, or maybe not. I guess it
would depend what Dell has in stock for the processor speed I select.
Thanks again.
