Those who have ordered from Monarch: How are they as far as sending you exactly what you ordered? Specifically, I'm referring to CPU part numbers. I just ordered an A64 3000+ from them, and the "manufacturer's part number" they have listed corresponds to a CG stepping cpu. Then I see on their forums that this past summer someone posted a similar question and was told they don't know what stepping they get, they just get 3000+'s (from several sources) and sell them. This is making me question how reliable they are. I don't want a C0 stepping cpu! However, when the question was posted (June/July), there may have been more C0's out there.
