    This guide will help you to determine your motherboard type:

    Motherboard model
    Microsoft regularly makes new revisions of the motherboard to fix faults, make it more efficient, and lower the manufacture costs. There are, as of August 2008, four revisions, each has its own codename. Look at the pictures below to determine your board revision. See the full details here.

    The power connector on the back of the console can reveal which motherboard you have by comparing the details shown in the picture below.
