Hi I have just purchased an AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Socket AM3 3.2 GHz 8MB L3 Cache Retail Boxed Processor, however in my system reports it states that my level 3 cache is only 6MB?

Is this correct or have I been sold a duff CPU? Can anyone please tell me...thank you for your help.

On the box it says 8mb cache as in L2 and L3.
Nothing is wrong. You have 2mb L2 and 6mb L3
