Is there anyway i can tell if this control box is for n54 or n55?

as always he one word answered me back with N54.

Im not 100% sure if its for n54 or n55. anyway i can tell?
They are different boards, so if it was used on an N54 before it's an N54 board. Per the interface notes it will give a false warning if the N54 board has really old firmware. So update the firmware and the false warning will go away.
