Form factor or specific model?

Do you mean type as in AT, ATX, NLX, or WTX? Or do you mean the manufacturer and model. I think that on some motherboards there is some sort of ID number on it that you can use to cross-reference it on some motherboard manufacturer database on theInternet. I have no idea as to where the number is located or the site where this motherboard database is. You might want to try to see if anything there can help you or maybe If you know anyone with the Scott Mueller book "Upgrading and Repairing PCs - 12th Edition" then you can use the equipment database that is on the included CD.
