How To Identify A CPU Model By Looking At It

I have a Intel CPU - used and old and I am not using it
Pls dont suggest softwares or mobo manual or purchase receipt etc - I have none
I want a way to identify the CPU by looking at it... as simple as that
I want to know if it is a Dual Core or a Core 2 Duo
There is absolutely nothing written on the top or its all gone cuz of the thermal paste
All I can see is a long number on the front... which is:
N4648812
A8622
And on the back I can see the chip cores etc and the number 100
Here are a few pics, I used a mobile cam hence its messed up...

will try and upload better pics if they are of any use...

    The article is abt PSU's not CPU's... am reading it anyway... just a small doubt if u linked me the wrong article...
  3. Oh sorry my mistake I though you typed PSU.
    Was kind of in a rush.

  5. You need to clear off that thermal paste on top, underneath it will say something like this


    You can google the SL*** code to find the specific processor model.

    It may also just plainly list it on the top.

    Yours will look a little different but it the the writing engraved on the heatsink you need.
