AFAIK, the only way is to physically look at markings on your chip. I think the steppings on AMD cpus are more more complex then intel's? Which is maybe why you can't simply look for a "G0" or "B3" equivalent in CPUz.

I wouldn't bother taking your 185 out just to find a string of numbers, especially since you've already oc'ed to 3GHz. It's more of useful piece of information to know prior to testing, gives you a general idea of how far you can realistically hope to push it.
