    ^ Thank you, kind sir.

    To the OP: The system looks amazing, and good luck to you. Had a board similar to that as well back from 1994-2012 and it was a pretty good machine at that time. What revision of the BIOS is on there, and is it the AMI WinBIOS?

    100mhz on a PC Chips motherboard.

    I can see it's using real cache but how is that even stable?

    I had a PCChips M912 v1.7 running on real 256KB L2 cache and an AMD Am486 DX4-120 in it from 1994-2012 and it was pretty stable for its age. Windows 95C ran without issues, and so did 98SE (to a certain point of view), but, 24MB RAM wasn't enough for Windows 98SE, except Windows 95C ran pretty darn well.

    If you're wondering what the deal is with PCChips, this may be of some help. Like anything else, your mileage may vary. I used Amptron 8600 (P1) motherboards, which were made by PCChips, for years with no problems.

    PCChips made a bunch of AT boards for P2 that ran decently (when everyone else was using the ATX layout).
    I also have a bunch of their Athlon boards. They ended up getting purchased by ECS. Also they sold the same boards under different names.
    What I collect: 68K/Early PPC Mac, DOS/Win 3.1 era machines, Amiga/ST, C64/128
    Nubus/ISA/VLB/MCA/EISA cards of all types
    Boxed apps and games for the above systems
    Analog video capture cards/software and complete systems
