I was thinking of getting it from newegg.com, but the retail version doesn't list the special stepping instructions that the OEM version does. Anyone know what i should do?

Get the OEM because its cheaper, you could use the extra money to buy a better HSF. <font color=blue>Your mouse moved. WINDOWS NT must restart for changes to take affect.
