i ordered my 165 off newegg about 2 weeks ago, and i still received the CB5WE stepping, which is a great overclocker. There are only about two steppings, out of the 6 or 7, that arent monster overclockers. Even then, i have seen the worst steppings hit 2.5+ ghz on air. The only reason i keep mine at 2.3, is my crappy value ram that is restricting it, but once i get some new Gskill ram and my swiftech loop, 3 ghz here i come.
