Can somebody help me identify the north and south bridge on a Gigabyte GA-P55M-UD2: http://www.gigabyte.com.au/products/product-page.aspx?p...

Thank you. I believe the south bridge is the one with the Gigabyte printing on it however I am not sure were the north bridge is...

What were once north bridge functions are performed, for the most part now, by the processor in this 1156 and most newer architectures. What used to be CPU/Northbridge/Southbridge is now just a CPU (with integrated northbridge functionality like memory controller) and a south bridge with no north bridge.

This is why you're not finding a north bridge on your 1156 motherboard.
