This sound card is pretty good. It makes less noise than my 486 with Sound Blaster pro 2.0.
And this sound card has allot of customization too.

This 386 computer performs good. Plays DOS games just as good as my 486 computer.
Runs WIndows 3.11 good too.

Interesting build, love the approach! That sound card pictured in the first post looks like a card sold by Diamond that was made by Media Chips vs Media Vision, and sold in a variety of configurations (mostly swapping the Crystal DSP for ADI) with the same YMF-262 / OPL3 chipset for FM audio, most of which were made in Taiwan vs the US?

They had a Mac version of the PAS16 too.

Would adding an “Intel 387 math-coprocessor” over ride the motherboard onboard CPU and turn this into a 387 computer ?

Nope,
A 386 w/ a 387 coprocessor computer

Now that is a dilemma, AMD and Intel CPU working together on the same motherboard.
A true Made is USA motherboard Sporting the RED team and BLUE team.

Okay, I just ordered this Intel 387 math-coprocessor.
Hope it will work in this motherboard.

But LianLi is a Taiwanese company 😀

Yes, Maybe someday I will find a case made in USA.
I am still gathering up parts for this build but most of the motherboard components are “Made in USA”
