    Yeah looks like another X-rev board. Can you dump the BIOS chip (SPI) if you get one of these? Its U7 chip right above the PM55. Weird the guy took off the heatsink.

    If you don't have an external flash tool: (preferred since would want to see the EC code too)
    Can just USB boot to dos and dump the regions with Intel's flash tool.
    ftpw.exe -DESC -d desc_dump.bin
    ftpw.exe -ME -d me_dump.bin
    ftpw.exe -BIOS -d bios_dump.bin
    ftpw.exe -GBE -d gbe_dump.bin

    I've contacted the seller. He cannot promise if it works or not.
    He is checking if the motherboard matches the picture.
