Hi JoJo - and welcome to the forum.

Not sure what you mean by "not listed anywhere" - there are lots of references to it on the web.

As far as I can tell, the "intel pentium gold 7505" has PAE (Primary Address Extension) that allows it to address up to 64GB RAM, and this is a requirement for Linux to run.  So it looks OK for you.   
The 7505 is a budget CPU so don't expect very fast performance.  Other than that it should be fine. 

Keith
