I just had another detailed look at the components.

We use the Cool Lite Runner2 (CLR2) board (due to the required Audio output)

According to the coreboot site, V2 supports the GX1, GX2 and LX

The CLR2 has the CS5536 southbridge compared to the
standard CLR having the CS5535. This is also supported.

The Super I/O  is the Winbond63827HF and that is not supported, but
supported in coreboot V3

How much info is required of the rest of the board specifications?
