AMD Phenom II X2 555

I have just bought an AMD Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition CPU in a retail box with fan. When I check the code on the CHIP with the AMD website it turns out that have shipped a plain vanilla 555, not the Black Edition. The codings are HDZ555WFGMBOX and HDZ555WFK2DGM. However, other retailers like and in the UK are selling the same CPU advertised as Black Editions. Can so many respectable retailers be getting it so wrong? Pls enlighten.
