Hello,

Long story short, I have a used Intel processor that has come into my possession and I do not have a motherboard to test it out on, and it does not have the traditional metal "lid" on the top of it that describes its model number. Is there any way I can identify it?

Thank you for your thoughts,
J

Sorry for the double-post, but I believe I spoke too soon. I unfortunately cannot find any relevant information pertaining to what appears to be a serial number of "H74663". We are not certain that is the exact number as it is very hard to read. I have included two photos here -- would anyone be able to help me identify this thing? According to the original owner, it is an i9 9900k, however I am not quite certain that is what it is.

The i9 9900k should have a soldered integrated heat spreader (IHS) or "lid" as you call it. It sounds like the previous owner went to the trouble of delidding it; a process that is delicate and can easily damage the cpu. Kindly provide a full, clearly focused image of the top side of the cpu. I find it odd that the partial serial number is barely visible. See https://www.intel.com/content/www/us...rocessors.html

Thank you both for your replies. After throwing some random cpu searches at google and inspecting their undercarriages closely I have found that it is in fact an i7-7700k. Thanks again for your information!
