    Well I made an online order a little after midnight when they showed instock. I called at 10:00 finally got through to someone at 10:07 a.m. Requested DO for my online order they checked and said okay. I told a buddy of mine so he made online ordered called and they said they were out. Whoever was checking was checking in the stock room and wasn't aware that there were four in the glass case. I saw em and had my buddies co switched to it. Sometimes going in person pays off. Fear not though, the get more in tomorrow so you'll have another crack at it.

    BTW, the B-batch chips look like they have OCs more like the D0 Xeons. From the limited reports I have read anyway. You might just have some gold under that IHS.

    I am as well.

    I ordered 2 D0's from that Antaresdigital.com place, and after many headaches, they should be here on Thursday.
    Apparently, they don't ship them from their facility, but actually have Intel themselves ship them.

    So, I *should* be getting one of the "newer" ones. But, we will see.

    80GB X25-m G2 | WD 640GB | PCP&C 750 | Dell 2408 LCD | NEC 1970GX LCD | Win7 Pro | CoolerMaster ATCS 840 {Modded to reverse-ATX, WC'ing internal}

    GPU Loop: MCP655 > MCW-60 > PA160 (1x YL D12SH) > ST Res > BIP 220 (2x YL D12SH) >Pump

    Wish Microcenter would move here... they only have a Frys here, but no microcenter. :\ Haven't really seen any good Frys deals even on their "Anniversary Sale".

    Ok, so Dallas does have chips in stock despite what the web says, about 100. Now the bad is that I was told by two different sales people that the D0 I got was the last ones. These are guys I deal with on a regular basis, so I trust them. Now I just need to see how this D0 does compared to my other one and then sell one.
