Default QX9650 revisions?

Are there multiple QX9650 revisions? If so, how can I tell one from another in a shop, looking at CPU package?

Thanks. I was reading about QX9650 problems on low-end mobos, which is (hopefully) not Asus Mamimus (X38) problem. In fact, Q9450/9550 are supposed to be newer revisions (C1) than QX9650 (C0).

I don't think you'd have any problems with the CPU on an Asus X38 board.

The problem only affects low end motherboards with 4 layer PCBs.
