    What you listed is actually the s-spec code, not the stepping. Both of the two you listed are C1 steppings. I'd probably pick the one with the later pack date I guess. Check the CPU database to see if any of those two are listed. Too bad you can't find one of the D1 stepping 2.4B CPUs, either a SL6PC or a SL6Q8.
