So the 386DX40 (my mistake, it was a Forex chipset, not Neat), no response after cleaning. It powers up but just nothing happens. I'd expect resoldering + testing the traces would lead to a success.
The 386SX/16 (this one was the NEAT SX) is suffering from Tantium Tantrum Syndrome. They're causing shorts, and one blew up while I was leaning over the machine (the ONE time the board did let the PSU power up) - glowing projectiles everywhere (half of them hitting my shirt). So for the most part it is looking like a 'parts haul'. I'm not really too keen on spending an afternoon removing caps for a generic 386SX/16 that has suffered battery damage.
A 5170 case was nice though, I can get a power supply shipped here for under $US100 - as opposed to a case+psu at around 300. The 200W Seasonic that is installed works fine, but doesn't have that notch in the base to make room for the oversized IBM AT motherboard.
Still to test is the PS/2 display, hard drives, floppy drives, and those Pentium III's (although not really fussy about them).
Lots of cards, including 8 bit COM cards with 16550's installed - one has 4 ports and 4 UARTs. Video card with 64KB VRAM - EGA? Plus the usual suspects - mono and IO cards etc.
I promised I'd format the drives, so if Xenix is still on there, it'd have to be wiped unfortunately.
