Went with dual 1N5408 now, which output 4.2V in idle and fit nicely after removing the heatsink and reattaching it with superglue.
Runs absolutely stable with 24.1fps in Quake_low making it the fastest sub-Socket4 machine of the German DOS community 😀 There's still some room for improvement, as the POD only runs in WT mode on my current board.
Diodes get quite warm, but nothing overly worrying.

Glad to hear it is working out for you. I've done this mode with the double diodes without removing the heatsink, but requires more delicacy.

Very few motherboards work properly with the POD in WB mode, but they do exist however rare.
