I bought a used processor with this sSpec: SLGZ5. It's a Q9500S (see the attached photo). It runs OK and runs all the software I throw at it, but I can't find the sSpec on the Intel website. Is SLGZ5 a legit sSpec? If so where do I look it up to find details about the Q9500S ?
1) A google search does show that on the compatibility list for several desktop boards, but only in cache - meaning it was on those pages once, but was removed at some point
2) For tricky questions on a desktop processor, I'd probably also try the Processor community http://communities.intel.com/community/tech/processors or the Desktop community http://communities.intel.com/community/tech/desktop, in that order. They're more likely to have heard of any processors being pulled off the website.
