Default Which is my mainboard?

On my mainboard, it writes GA-8IG1000MK

GA-8IG1000MK (Rev 1.x) - GIGABYTE - Product - Motherboard - Overview

But all programs show it is GA-8IPE1000MK, such as everest.

GIGABYTE GA-8IPE1000MK | Anakartlar - Teknik Özellikler

I am using my system with 8ig1000mk drivers. Maybe this can make some problems.

What do you say about this?

I would go with what's written on the mainboard. Software can confuse versions of boards especially when there's different revisions of the same model.

Go with whatever is actually written on the board itself.

I'm confused, what did the BIOS (POST you're referring to I'm guessing) show?

Here is the real question. Are you having driver issues?

Bios is while booting,i go to bios page by pressing delete or anopther special button. And at top it writes mainboard name.
Also while system is starting, it shows how much ram,gpu name etc. Motherboard model is shown too.

I think i dont have driver issues. Recently sound has gone but i solved it.

I^m confused. Did you mean motherboard by saying board?

On motherboard, the original writing is 8ig1000mk but a lot of software and also bios system screen says not this model........

download cpu-z it should tell u the information about your computer
http://www.cpuid.com/download/cpuz/cpuz_153.zip

link to the non-install 32bit application or just
CPUID
if you want to install a different version, although i dont see what the problem is, alot of motherboards will have a different driver profile to the actual board itself, just going with what it will run with
