Building up a system based around a Daewoo motherboard with a TI 33MHz 486SLC onboard. It also has 64KB of L2 cache populated. (The CPU has 1KB of L1 cache)

Building in this new old stock AT Tower case:

Using this no name ATX power supply because it claims to put out -5 Volts.

That PSU is a rebranded FSP (Fortron-Source Power) unit so you're safe.

Main: i5-3470, 16GB RAM DDR3, Gigabyte B75M-D3H
G.T.2: P2 266MHz, 256MB SDR, Zida/Tomato 6DLX "LX98-AT"
Shaman: P3 650MHz, 384MB RAM, Soyo SY-6BA+ IV

I'm looking forward in seeing some benchmarks on this setup. Maybe try Phil's DOS benchmark pack, including the following (with and without turbo mode enabled) :
Navrátil System Information
Norton System Information 8.0
Landmark Speedtest 2.0 & 6.0
Doom 1 timedemo 3
3D Bench
PC Player benchmark

Just check that L1 cache is enabled

I was recently given the same mobo but with 25mhz cpu and no daewoo logo. Do you have the manual for it? I have decoded the jumpers except two of them...
It's a nice little mobo but still hovers at good 386dx40 speeds, cpu benchmarks will be high but real performance like 3dbench or doom/wolfenstein fps will show the truth 😀

Isn't this board an Elite Group WH 386SX?

Not exactly there is for example a JP9 and there is a verified jumper to select if your RAM has parity or not - the WH386SX mobo has no jumper for this.
They are very similar, maybe the 486slc mobo is optimized for this cpu or something , maybe the -D at the end of the model marks the difference

I propose the "-D" stands for Daewoo.

Then it will forever remain a mystery, unless the answer is hidden in the ECS archives somewhere. Maybe the waybackmachine can turn something up.

Got my ATX --> AT harness today so I can continue building

Going to use this Aztech labs Sound Galaxy sound card. It has good SB and Adlib compat thanks to a real Yamaha OPL chip. More importantly, it features a proprietary controller connector for matsushita/panasonic cd-rom drives...

which i'm using. it's a 2x panasonic/matsushita with proprietary interface.
