DQ67SW B3 or B2?

Hello.

Just bought DQ67SWB3... And I'm confused.

1. According to specification update http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/dq67sw/sb/CS-032144.htm http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/dq67sw/sb/CS-032144.htm the board should have new AA Revision G12527-305, and it is on the label on my board. But, according to this http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/CS-032329.htm http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/CS-032329.htm AA Revision should be G12527-304. So... what's the true?!

2. In Universal Serial Bus controllers section I see Hardware ID ends in 04, what meens it's B2... I don't no what to think.

Help me find the true!

"Earlier revisions of the AA number use the B2 chipset."

so G12527-304 and G12527-305 will be B3 ??

Wrong! I've bought "-305" three times, and everyone happend to be B2.

Well, now the only way to identify B2 is to switch it on, install Windows and look in device manager... BTW, last 2 week, my pc-shop had two new bulkboxes supplyes. According to labels on that boxes, that was BLKDQ67SWB3, but after checking, all was B2. So... is there real SWB3 on Earth?..

OMG. -306 has B2 too. Intel, where are you? How can you explain this?

And where is the instruction about B3-B2 identification through Device Manager?

WHY did you detele it, and put there some strange utility, that does'n tell b3 or b2?

Well is there GOOD B2 or what? Tock Tock!

Thanks everyone who answered. But in fact this place is useless just like intel techsupport.

Very, very disappointed...
