P8Z77-M Pro was what I could find, the easiest way for you to check would be to pop off a panel and look at the board. It will be written on there.

According to the web that motherboard inside that computer is customized. There is no model for that board
But it does look like the p8z77-m pro
Run CPU-Z and click on the motherboard tab, it should tell you what model it is.

That is an Asus Desktop/Consumer PC/ ROG CG8480. The motherboard is not a retail box edition. The motherboard may list a name between the PCI express slots. The support files may be similar to a retail boxed motherboard but some will be different. The BIOS files will definitely be different.

4 GB Up to 16 GB
Dual Channel, DDR3 at 1600MHz
4 x DIMMs

16GB max is either 2x8GB or 4x4GB, both of these setup runs the ram in dual channel.
Already have a 8GB, then adding another 4GB making it to 12GB will be dual channel, but once you
add another 4GB to max out at 16GB, it becomes single channel.
Grab another 8GB and upgrade to 16GB.
If that board is actually that Pro, then maximum ram is 32GB not 16GB.

Dear Lady/Sir,

Kindly I ask your attention. :) 

Go to Asus and do the Online Driver Update and the website lets you known the mainboard you have and the drivers you need.

And you could download a program to check your system information like Lavalys and SiSoft Sandra or simular to it.

Hopefully I let you known enough, that you will find the answers you seek! :) 

Good luck and have fun doing it! :) 

Best Regards,

MeneerWitte

PS:
Merry Christmas & Best Wishes 2014! :)
