Software or system info to tell me what brand and model motherboard in my XP

How can I tell what motherboard I have in my custom built computer.  I think it's an ASUS.  But how can I tell the exact model number etc, without tearing it out of my tightly packed tower.

I'm running XP.  Can't easily find the model number -- at least I looked -- in the device manager.

There must be a software solution to dig out that info????

    Everest Home was discontinued in February 2006 and does not provide information for some newer devices. Still a useful product for older PCs though.

    I've been using SIW and am pleased with it. Newer product and up-to-date. Also runs from a single file - no installation needed.
