Not seen a Supermicro S2D** board since i got it moons ago. It takes the 700mhz, 900 mhz CPUs fine.

Overclockable to 112mhz FSB in the bios. 133MHz FSB by software.

900 Mhz Xeon is multiplier locked and can do 1008Mhz (112MHz x9), needs a vmod for higher! I call it the Tualatin killer.

700Mhz Xeons and below are unlocked, need to check if setmul can work with them. Fastest at 864Mhz (133MHz x 6.5)

Ye already be disturbed; now leave me be. Yer company be toil enough as is.

I think Pentium speed deserves the board 😁

Talking of more hot running, recalled Pentium iiis..

Apparently Xeon PIII heatsinks were still not big enough 🤣

Amiga 2000 Rev 4.x motherboard is my guess as well. Should be a pretty easy repair -- even with mine having terrible battery damage, I was able to revive it without issue. I only needed to fix 2 traces, and the traces on that board are pretty big.

Edit, and is that a 68030 accelerator below it? That would be the most value..

Indeed, this is one of the most interesting parts. Its a 68040:

Of course, i do spot several MCA cards, but one of them is not famillar for me. But I finally spotted pieces that upgrades the amiga plus few cards, hard drive card for amiga, one of them looks like 486 or 68040 even 68060 accelerator card.
And there's 030 accelerator board for the amiga A600 or A1200.

I'm sending you a PM.

Cheers,

Great Northern aka Canada.

NICE! Supermicro S2DG2! the 900/2m/100 chips are the BEST things you can use in that board. The 1000/133/256's are totally worthless. They are no different than using slot 1's.

@predator99
I wish the electronics scrap here in the US was HALF as good as the stuff you get.

It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.

Absolutely, I was stoked to finally find the 900/2/100 one on home soil (I read you have 2 of the beasts). I just got the others for benchmark comparison fun.
I'll create a build thread eventually.

That lot is getting better and better. Imi identified this one:
http://amiga.resource.cx/exp/blizzardppc

A1200 Blizzard PPC / 603e & 603e Plus
processor
PowerPC 603e @ 160 / 200 / 240 MHz
68LC040 or 68040 @ 25 MHz or 68060 @ 50 MHz
can be ordered without a 680x0 companion CPU to fit an existing one into the socket

Wow, like that!

I guess it is some form of server or workstation board. Which chipset is it on the board?

Thanks!

Based on the 440GX Chipset. SMP version of the 440BX that supports up 2GB of ram.

Hard to tell if this one is intended as a server or a workstation or just trying to cover both but very handy to have a AGP slot 😀

Cool things about it is multiplier control (3-7x), a small overclock option, no terminator need for 1 CPU operation and mismatched CPUs are okay for slot2 in general .

Not a lot of time for this hobby lately, but I did get this Abit KA7-100. with Athlon 750MHz.

Caps look ok, no? /s

Some of them look bulged at the top? I would be very surprised to find any Slot-A/Socket-A boards with healthy caps to be honest..
