I've been trying unsuccessfully to get some consistent, correct information about what the stepping is for the OSA244BOX model. I'd like to be sure that if I purchase multiple CPUs from different vendors the processors will share the same stepping. Specifically I mean buying OSA244BOX processors.

I'm beginning to believe the OSA244BOX is a OSA244CEP5AL with a heat sink and fan but haven't confirmed it yet. I read another posting from "OrangesAway May 3 2005, 06:45 PM" that said "The revisions are now encoded in the Processor in a Box part numbers. See the Opteron Processor Quick Reference Guide" but I didn't find this to be true.

I'd also like to know how to identify stepping information for boxed processors in general.

Can anyone at AMD make a definitive comment about this?

Not easy to collect info on steppings. New steppings sometimes result in new OPN codes, most of the times they don't.
From what I have (collected from what on the net): OSA244BOX is either stepping B3 (OSA244CCO5AH) or stepping C0 (OSA244CEP5AL). Stepping CG (OSA244CEP5AU) has code OSA244AUBOX.
