1This can usually be found near one of the four edges of the board on the top side (the side with all the connections, chips, etc. showing).
3For best results, form your search by typing the manufacturer name in quotation marks, and then type the word AND, and then type the model number exactly as you saw it on the motherboard. For example: "Fred's Motherboard Factory" AND FCMB920103

6In most cases, they will be happy to direct you to the appropriate section of their website.
