I have an EVGA X299 motherboard and I am trying to update the BIOS. The problem is that there are 4 versions of this motherboard with difference part numbers, e.g. 121-SX-E296, 131-SX-E295, etc... I have tried using multiple methods to retrieve the correct part number, including going into the BIOS, but each time it just says EVGA X299 without specifying the part number. Is there a way I can look this up or otherwise determine which of the 4 BIOS updates I want?

    If you're comfortable doing so, it's just a matter of opening your case and identifying the motherboard - post pictures if you're not sure. Pictures of the I/O plate on the back can also be helpful.

    Otherwise, try CPU-Z and see what's listed under the mainboard tab (I don't have access to my PC right now so I can't confirm what's listed there).

    Thanks. If it isn't trivial to access the hardware, is there a way to check it online or using some software tool? I seem to recall somebody worked this out once, but my memory no longer serves.
    CPU-Z did the same as the others and posted:

    Are you running the latest CPU-Z? Pictures I've seen seem to have the model number listed for some models.

    You could also try EVGAs E-Leet software and see if it's identified there.

    Also try HWInfo.

    The I/O ports on the back of the various x299 boards are unique and could help ID it as well.

    ^^ That would definitely do it. Or you can use ELEET or HWiNFO64. It [HWiNFO] will show you quite a bit...MB model info, BIOS version,ect,ect.

    Open a command prompt, and paste this in and hit enter. 
          wmic baseboard get product,Manufacturer,version,serialnumber   

     
    You can also click "Start" and type "System Information" and click on "System Information"
    This will give all kinds of info. including Bios version.

    As others have mentioned, it's printed on the motherboard itself.
     
    Or, if you kept the box (you should have!) it's printed on the label too.
