Quick dumb question, processor code name


So I am trying to find the code name for my processor (building out a hardened kernel so I am stripping out all the parts I don't need and going well above and beyond the nsa hardening guidelines)...

I checked out the support page for instructions on identifying processor codename --- How to Find the Code Name for Intel® Processors .  This gave instructions to search for the processor itself and look under essentials, well I did that and it isn't listed on Xeon e3-1270-v6's page . 


I found another page that has a list of them by which line they're from Codename list , on this page I found that they have the code name's "Denlow" for v3 line and "Greenlow" for v5 line..


Here's the kicker...  Mine appears to be v6
