I'll post my build!
It all started with an IBM 300GL recovered from my grandmother's attic, it was the PC that my cousins and I used when we were kids.
It was originally a:
-Pentium MMX 166 + 256kb L2
-3GB Quantum Fireball
-Sound Blaster Vibra XV CT4170
-IBM\Hitachi 16X CD
-Cirrus Logic 5446 with 1MB RAM
A strange thing, I can't find the documentation with the original configuration of this model!
He had mounted a Pentium 200 downclocked to 166mhz via the motherboard jumpers, very strange...
I enjoyed doing some upgrades, the goal is to have a PC for DOS \ Win 3.11 \ Windows 95
-Pentium 233, although on the documentation the jumpers are only up to 200mhz, setting them to 100mhz the CPU goes to 233
-32MB Celestica SDRAM, like the original one
-1MB additional memory for the Cirrus VGA
-Sound Blaster AWE64 CT4520
-Creative 3D Blaster Voodoo2 12MB CT6670
-SD to IDE adapter with 3D printed bracket
-Olivetti keyboard, because I live in Italy, in Ivrea where Olivetti has its headquarters 😁😁
-Roland SC-88VL White Edition
I connected the pc to a DELL 4K monitor via a VGA -> HDMI adapter that supports all DOS resolutions

I added a fan on the original passive heatsink and put a Noctua thermal paste
Here you will find all the original documentation of the pc 300GL, including an IBM FTP mirror with all the drivers!
