at newegg there are two AMD 955 CPUs.

HDZ955FBGMBOX for $175

AND

HDZ955FBGIBOX for $165

does anyone know if the HDZ955FBGMBOX has implemented the anticipated C3 revision ?
i have already looked on the net and information is minimal.

i would have been willing to pay an extra $10 for the C3 revision even though it is the same thermal design power.

just my luck i bought the HDZ955FBGIBOX for $165 last week...

If you want to pick up one of the new 125W Phenom II X4 965 chips with AMD’s latest C3 revision specifically, your best bet is to look really close at the CPU’s OPN number. The OPN # for the new C3 revision CPU is HDZ965FBK4DGM. The “M” at the end denotes the new C3 revision.

These are just some lines from
http://www.firingsquad.com/hardware/amd_phenom_ii_x4_965_125w/page2.asp
look on the bottom of that page at "Spotting a 125W chip"

So it look's like the new C3 revision has made also for 955 !
Eh, unlucky buy for you than :(
Hope it helps !
