I did a swap with another fellow vintage hobbyists, from England, were he got a 5x86-133 chip and I recieved a Socket3 ISA board. The fun thing about this, is that it supports dx4-100's. Yet it is ISA only. This however does not affect the goal for my next build, that I have begun today.
The build will be an early adopters 486 machine. Everyone are going for VLB systems that have DX2-66's or PCI systems that have DX4-100's. And as I like to play differently than others in some cases, I will go and create something that would have been sold as highend, when 386sx33's were standard and something that represent my first computer. Or... As close as I can get it, some 25 years later.
The build will be a 100% ISA slot, 486dx33 system. I have not yet decided on 4, 8 or perhaps 16mb Ram. That will come.
Untill now. I have only decided on cards, found cache memory and found the CPU. Need to dig out a few more components.
I think I will name this machine, after one of my ancestors. His name was Gabriel Milan.
Or actually more accurate: Don Franco de Tebary Cordova. (born in 1631 and beheaded in 1689 in Copenhagen)
He was born in Spain, from a Portugese jewish family, and married the daughter of a fameous jewish scolar named Benjamin Musaphia.
The name of this build, will be based upon Don Franco or Milan or something like this.
Or perhaps based on the Virgin Island Saint Thomas, that he was one of the first guvernours on, during the reign of the Danish state.
Enough history... This is as far as I have come today.
Went through all my 72pin modules... I have like 9 modules of 16mb, 5 modules of 8mb and 7 modules of 4mb.
They all count up on this board, so I gave them a label for me to know what is what.
Don't eat stuff off a 15 year old never cleaned cpu cooler.
Those cakes make you sick....
