Make sure to look in every single location on the motherboard. Some hints might be on the underside of PCI slots or on top of the I/O connectors on the back of the motherboard. If you find any numbers that look like the might be part of the serial number or something, google it and see what happens. That's what I do when I need to ID a mobo.

It's not a race, unless it is a race.

Then it won't matter what make and model it is, because if it has been damaged it's scrap.

If you're lucky, the CPU is still good. Old and out-dated, but usable.
