Looks like many (if not all) Mercury/Kobian boards are just ECS/PC Chips OEM boards:
KOB 630E FSFx = ECS P6STP-FN
KOB 735 FSX = ECS K7S5A = PC Chips M830L
KOB 845GL NDSMx = PC Chips M903LU
...

KOB EX AT = Procomp B681

That was what I was looking for. Not ECS/PCChips only...

I thought that they're a real manufacturer but then found a reference that KOB 735 FSX is ECS K7S5A. And found that KOB 630E FSFx board I have is ECS P6STP-FN in fact... The new boards have their "own" BIOS ID strings and even nice Mercury full-screen logo.

8O one of these days we'll only need to collect ECS/PC Chips manuals and a large list of who is relabeling them as what...

Thanks for the info 8)
