View Full Version : New to Mobo Identification

I want to learn how to identify motherboards manually (just looking at the physical board). So, right now I have an intel board in front of me. What else can I learn by looking at the board itself?

CPU socket type, # of RAM and Expansion slots, back connectors, sometimes the chipset, manufacturer, color of the PCB...

Not much else. To get a positive ID on a motherboard as well as all the features, you basically have to memorize each board and its picture and feature list.

alot of mobos show the model or part number on the board near to the pci slots
