There are many boards out there with owners that would love to upgrade. Often a good easy to build vrm module is what stands in their way
Some of these projects have already popped up but could use some more development and maybe more exposure could help find more supporters
I’m aware of at least two people who have started such a project, necroware has a video https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=J0NLGfocviU about theirs and there was a project for the gigabyte ga-586dx which I lost the link for, and possibly a few others.
It seems to me we could have a round up thread for these projects where we pool our information and help one another with this
With enough creative minds for this in one place we may even be able to design a vogons brand socket 5-7 interposer. For upgrading without a vrm module.
It may be that a general use circuit could be designed and simply the board edge could be modified for each application to fit different boards.
One edge could be for socket 7 vrm, a different edge could be for socket 8, and yet another could be a socket 7 interposer like a powerleap, there could also be a break out style one for use on boards like ga-586dx (but we already have a pretty good answer for that one, which I lost the link to can someone link it?)
