Auction: IBM Microchannel MCA 9577 Lacuna Mainboard w/83MHz PODP

From uniplus (good seller, good stuff)

http://search.ebay.com/310035052167

$9.99 starting bid. Ends Mar-31-08, 22:57:48 PDT (4 days, 13 hours)
$10.45 (!) shipping to the US from Seattle, WA USA. Ships worldwide.

Looks like the 32MB installed RAM comes from 4x8MB SIMMs instead of
2x16MB. But there's a POD83 in the deal too, which is always good even
if the Lacuna board doesn't always work well with them.

No affiliation.

What do you mean the 83 doesn't always work well with them?  Does the
DX4-100 work better?

I have used both, no problem.  Fastest setup I had was POD, L2 set to
write-back, and ECC RAM.  It had the occasional twitch versus
write-thru on the cache, but the bump in speed was worth it.

Never had a problem as long as I put the interposer between the CPU
and socket,
or snip a pin off the CPU.
