Newegg 9900k on sale, but is it somehow different?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I see newegg has the 9900k on sale, $420, but it's a box instead of the dodecahedron. Does it denote a different stepping like R0? How would I know if they're selling the R0 stepping?

Intel stopped selling the 9900k in the dodecahedron a month or so ago.

Regarding the stepping ... no idea.  I would assume that the 9900k in the box are the newest ones off of the line ...
