Default The Hunt for a 920 with D0 Stepping.

I'm trying to find a 920 with D0 stepping. I can't seem to find any store that is willing to tell you exactly what they're selling.

They seem to be fully satisfied with plastering the "BX8060192" tag on it and leaving the customer wondering if they are really going to get what they want or not.

So, the Hunt: Anyone know which online stores have used up their stock of C0's, and from which you could be sure to get that shiny new D0 stepped 920?

Does such a beast even exist? I have no idea. That's why I'm asking you.

(Or, you know, you could point me to a store that bothers to tell you exactly what you're buying without raising the price at the same time. Like that "tankguys" shop, or whatever they're called.)

*Ooooh, it's a whale of a tale...*

Doesn't TankGuys sell them? I swear Tankguys were selling them, but members over at AnandTech said they ran out of stock. No harm in giving them a call.

The E3520 is a D0 Xeon single socket version of the i7 920, not much more either cost wise.
