I've been interested in the AMD Phenom II X4 955 CPU for sale at Newegg. (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113007) The CPUs at Newegg have the parts number HDX955WFK4DGM. (The non-Black Edition C3 version.) The Asus website lists the 955 as a supported CPU for that motherboard, but on closer inspection only lists product numbers HDZ955FBK4DGI and HDZ955FBK4DGM). (C2 and C3, respectively, both Black Editions.)
Am I correct in presuming that the CPUs at Newegg are incompatible with my motherboard? I assume these things need to be precise fits to work.

Most likely it will work, it is just a OEM CPU recently released to retail.
Are your sure? According to AMD's website, the HDX955WFK4DGM has a slightly different voltage than the supported CPUs. Would that cause problems?
