Is there a way to ID my motherboard through software?

Code:
# dmidecode | grep Product
	Product Name: Z87X-HD3
	Product Name: Z87X-HD3
Run the command as root if it names the board model as something different then Product Name then you will need to remove the| grep part to look at the whole output to see it.

	Product Name: Nobilis
	Product Name: H81M-C
Huh. I could have sworn the guy at the shop that built this computer said it used an ASUS motherboard. The sticker on the front says Nobilis, so I guess this information is correct. Thank you.

Your welcome. Try Manufacturer as well to see that, the Product in my output only gives me the model that first one of yours could be a board model name not the Manufacturer.

Code:
# dmidecode | grep Manufacturer
	Manufacturer: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd.
	Manufacturer: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd.
	Manufacturer: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd.
