ASUS, asrock name locations are usually at the pci slots or next to the CPU
DFI has thiers labeled on some of the components on the rear panel
Gigabyte usually puts them on the Right side of the CPU next to the memory slots together with the brandname
Asus boards usually start with CPU names in front
P5**** P4**** ((pentium))
A7*** A8**** ((AMD))
Asrock usually names the socket first
EX: 775 VM800 - 775 Socket...
Gigabyte goes on with the chipset preceeded by brand initials
MSI normally settles theirs between the Slots of pci again...
U can allways look on their websites to see how their newer mainboards look like and take reference from there... Allways helps as brands usually keep their branding at the same places as in their legacy models... that way it is easyer for a techie to identify it if parts need replacement...
Edit: if you really can't figure... u can allways PM me some pictures and i could find out for you
