is there a way to tell what stepping and revision from my chip?

hello
I just got an intel duo core E2140 from microcenter for 65 bucks after tax
i heard that the mo revision runs cooler.
Is there a way to check whether that chip is this mo revision without sticking it into the mobo?
thanks.

    Edit:

    :lol: . o O (without out it on the MB?)

    It would be the serial number, but I don't know where the list to help figure that out.
  2. ehe, too much turkey on your belly makes you sleepy
    thanks for the quick reply though
  3. Maybe this will help:

    E2160 and E2140 New L-2 to M-0 Stepping, BIOS update required

    Ya... dat turkey was good. :lol:

    Edit:

    Forgot to mention, just look at the product code and compare.
  4. i just compared the new cpu to the one i purchased previously, everything about the same, only the package date differ by one day,
    so hope it is the mo revision that was supposed to run cooler
  5. Can I find out a Stepping/Revision by the labels on the boxes or the etched information on the CPU itself? I just bought a Q6600 but I don't want to open it if it is not a G0.
  6. The simpliest way is to go to Intel's website. Google Intel S spec. Usually first link.
    Enter the S spec of your processor SLACR or SL9UM etc.

    Great advice. The s spec tool also allows searches based on the Intel product code printed on barcoded label on the retail box. In other words, no need to open up the box to find the stepping and rev.
