Default help with conflicting i3-8100 specs

I've purchase the following motherboard GIGABYTE B360 HD3 (https://www.gigabyte.com/us/Motherbo...10#support-cpu) and an intel i3-8100 95W processor from amazon https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1


I am confused because gigabyte specifies that this motherboard will support i3-8100 but 65Watts but the one I purchased is 95Watts. I thought an i3-8100 is an i3-8100. How is it that there is a 65 Watt and a 95 Watt model? Will these two products go together?

Where are you seeing 95w?

All the specs for the i3-8100 show 65w for the TDP.

I think it's mislabeled by Amazon. There's even a question on the product page on Amazon about it:

Yeah Amazon specs are iffy most of the time. For example, scroll to the "More Technical Details" section, and you'll see it lists this:

"1 Lithium ion batteries required. "

The Gigabyte B360m is even listed under frequently bought together.
