I got a UMC UC-4913 motherboard from a friend and trying to find more about it I came across an e-bay listing asking $235 for one. My question is, whatís so special about an UMC UC4913 486 motherboard that costs so much? It seems just a like regular olí 486 motherboard to me. Is there something Iím missing?

It is a feature packed VLB board so probably worth more than a standard 486 motherboard. Well, for an ECS motherboard since ECS was a lower quality manufacturer. The seller does seem to be charging inflated prices on all items hoping to catch a desperate buyer.

How come did this thread land in "PCs and Clones"? Should be in "Later PCs".

Ah, thanks, that’s a letdown. I thought may have I stumbled onto some really unique 486 motherboard. :) I'll put it back in its antistatic bag and shelve it. Maybe one day I'll bench it and see how well it performs.

Sorry, my bad. I must have selected the wrong group when I posted. I don't think I can move it, so if someone who can, please do. :)

It's a simple, good 486 motherboard. There's nothing special about it. Unfortunately unscrupulous sellers are free to ask whatever they want for what they have. I pity the poor soul that will pay $200 for a generic motherboard. At least these sellers while despicable don't immediately throw their stuff in the recycling bin. But anyway, if you were looking for information like jumper settings they can be found in TH99. http://www.uncreativelabs.de/th99/m/E-H/31773.htm
