Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!
You have accomplished the following:
1. Now I won't accidentaly open the processor up when it arrives.
2. Because of #1, I will be able to return it with the greatest of ease
3. I will not be dissapointed when the processor does not work in my system.
Because of your response to my posting, I have ordered this item:
Since I messed up last time I tried to order this processor, I would appreciate it if you would critique this item and see if I messed up again. The little bit of reading that I have done leads me to believe that the LGA 1366 socket is also known as Socket B.
Again, PLEASE let me know if I messed up again...

Great processor. i had a chance to try it for a few hours and it sure is fast.
The only thing to keep an eye out for is that this processor has a Slower QPI link to the chipset, does NOT support hyperthreading and does NOT support Turbo Mode.
My personal choice would be the E5520 which support all the features above.
