    Once you know the model, go to the manufacturer's website and sometimes they have QVL with lists of RAM that were tested on that board.
    It's not always enough to have just make and model number, there may be several versions of a MB with same "main" model, v1.0, v.11, v2.0 etc and that could make all the difference as compatibility, BIOS version etc. If you don't know exact version and try to update BIOS for instance, you could end up with a bricked MB in a hurry. Programs like Speccy, Aida, Everest etc. can give you much more detailed, important information. Information provided with windows is as basic as it can be.
    This is true Count, my board was a revision v1.0 going to ASUS site does not tell me when looking for drivers and upgrade info.
    Which revision.

    Plus when i wanted to put Windows 8 on here because of my revision of the board it did not support secure boot, which higher revision possibly did, also i believe to do with the ROM type BIOS. Again could not be upgraded to newer CAP BIOS.

    When upgrading RAM i questioned ASUS's motherboard support over phone, they were unexpectedly great.

    It's even better to crosscheck with the markings on MB. Gigabyte for instance last few years marks exact version of MB in the left bottom corner of their MBs. Asus tends to print it somewhere between first two PCI slots. MSI is usually cryptic with their markings.

    Yes, forgot to add my motherboard lists the revision number next to but not close to the model number had to hunt a bit for it, but was not easy to see as they put it in location where sometimes have to remove your PCI card to see, like you said in between card slots.

    I saw that, ty. But my program does not list the motherboards model it lists the model PC's that also use this board. Again which is also listed on the board along with it's real model number and revision #.
