identify processor name
Ok this may be a silly question and the answer may be staring me in the face but I cant see it!
I have 7 Servers for which I am trying to identify the Processor name. I need this to use the APC UPS product selector so I can get the correct UPS for the Servers.
They are all HP Proliant Servers that have been in the school some time (I am new in the job). For all but the oldest 3 I can easily get the name ie Intel Xeon E5345 but for the 3 when I look at the properties of the processor in the Device Manager all I can see is ;
How can I decipher the Processor model from these?

You could try downloading/running CPU-Z

@Michael - That was going to be my next step. I dont want to really install anything on the servers.

There is a version on their site that doesn't require installing.

That's right, just run the .exe

A quick google reveals it's possibly a Pentium 4, Northwood. A later P4 but still, that's getting pretty old now.

Right click on 'My Computer' and click 'Properties', does that display any more information?

No tried that. I think I will give CPUID a go tomorrow.

Yeh the wmic command is DAMN handy.

Weirdly, that shows my i5-2400 as being an Intel Pentium III Xeon

Not sure what's going on with yours, but every computer I have run that command on has returned the correct processor name.

Although there are other methods of displaying the CPU name, I prefer CPU-Z as it's so detailed - including the multiplier, clock speed, bus speed. It's all there. There's nothing else quite like it.

Got a vbs that reads the processor description or title from a specific registry key which is basically the same info as the wmic command returns but do agree with regards to cpu-z or similar utils that shows other info. I remember having to use WCPU-ID but dont think that they carried on supporting it so doubt it would be any good on a server OS
