When you want this information is when you're wanting A, technical support or B, to look at the documentation that's on the website for this particular motherboard. So you lost the book and you want to learn how to hookup all the connectors again. So you would look for first off the brand name which generally will be emblazoned in many different places but in this case, it's right here on and it says ASUS which is one of the big motherboard companies. And then you have to find the model number which will be emblazoned as well but generally not in such as obvious place. In my case on my motherboard, it's right here. It says P4800SE.
