The motherboard is the thing with the yellow and black RAM slots on it. There should be some kind of identifying markings on it, such as manufacturer and model number.

A 6670 requires a 400W PSU

You will also need to clean the CPU and heatsink and reapply thermal paste before remounting the heatsink.

That fan looks like a stock Sandy fan. Can't really tell. Certainly doesn't look like any P67/H67/Z68 board I've ever seen though.

It's an Asus board, and seeing how it has a northbridge I'm gonna say 775. I also don't see a CPU in the slot or surrounding area so probably need one of those too.

Northbridge is still technically used these days ya know... It's the south bridge that has basically been gotten rid of, well, they merged them together for the most part anymore... NB wasn't just the memory controller, was all higher functions.

All NB functions are inside the CPU for all Core i CPUs (memory, FSB/QPI, PCI-E). The only thing left is SB which control devices like SATA. The board clearly had NB/SB setup so was obviously 775 and Asus to me.

Wouldn't some SATA controllers that are chipset based be considered a NB function?

No, SATA controller functions are SB or have their own chip like SATA3. My P67a board has USB3 and SATA 3 as separate chips whereas SATA2 and RAID functions are SB. All PCI-E is NB controlled for the lanes, and PCI is SB.
