That's a really interesting board. It looks like it has pipeline burst style cache like a pentium machine - would make a great POD5V or Cx5x86 rig. It even has a COAST socket for additional cache. Does it have PS/2 ?

Well its got the 72 pin modules. Isa-VESA slots, an SRAM slot, IDE connectors and solid cache. Supports up to 133Mhz.
Am going to use it as a 5x86 mahine eather a Cyrix 5x86 100P or a AMD 5x86 p75
Stocked with the find.

Yeah, amptron = PCChips = fake cache. If you want to have cache on these, you need to buy a specific COAST module that will only work with these. Don't use any other kind of COAST module or you'll toast your board or the COAST module or both

Hello,

I fear that this cache module isn't the right one.
At best it won't work, worse it might fry your board.
This board needs a specific module, follow this link (https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=43183)

Yeah, that coast module is exactly the kind of module that will die and/or kill your mobo once inserted

Just cause im curious why would it fry my board? States it supports up to 1024 cache.
Is it a Ns speed thing?

A speed issue would never fry a board to my knowledge. I believe that's because even though they use the same connector, the pinout is different
