Hey it's been a while !
I haven't done much recently, I'm waiting for DALLAS chips to arrive, and I should also order that missing resistor/chip for the ATC1415.
But today I was working on cleaning one of my working ISA I/O card because it's quite rusty and full of dirt (almost like the card had some mud on it or something like that) so I had to remove the parallel/game ports using the desoldering iron.
And since the iron was hot I thought "why not trying to desolder some 30 pin RAM slots from one of the donnor board ?" (I was kinda lazy to do that because that donnor board is actually quite resilient to "give" its components, or at least I thought it was because this time I had no real problem - maybe I'm just getting better at desoldering things with that desoldering iron ? - but also because it's a bit boring actually ^^). Anyways, so I successfully removed four 30 pin RAM slots from a dead 486 motherboard, and I brought them to the ABIT FU3 (the 386DX motherboard)
It still looks nasty, but what can I do now ?
And here's the front
I chose to not remove the other four RAM slots from this board even though they look a bit rough : too much work for too little (they work very well and the board will always look rough even with new ram slots, plus it's not like they had oxydation that could become worse after a while)
So I think that board is now totally fixed 😁 It just needs some cleaning and then it'll be ready to find a new metal home
