The north bridge chip is Intel Sandy Bridge-EP and integrated with the motherboard, users can test it with software, the south bridge chip is not the one that defines what the motherboard is, that’s why it could range from B75 to Q75, or from C204 to C206, this is technology common sense. South bridge chip is in charge of communication of I/O main line, such as PCI mainline, USB, LAN, ATA, SATA, Audio controller, keyboard controller etc. These are relatively stable, so different version of motherboard may have the same south bridge chip, the difference is the main chip, namely, north bridge chip.
