Multiple things:
- I didn't even know this board existed and we started of a G3 Accelerator board.
- The board was mostly autorouted, and the beefier power / ground lines didn't help having straight stuff.

Where did you get this ?
Wasn't critisizing! Just curious, lol I saw the board and thought that doesn't look like the one I have. Auto routing always makes a mess of things so that makes a lot of sense.

This is just a board I had laying around from my 6100. I have all kinds of crap in my stash lol

@macuserman Thank you !

Don't worry, I didn't feel you were criticizing. English isn't my first language, my answer was just half stoic half intrigued by your board. It may have been perceived otherwise.

Your board looks like to be 4 layers tho, mine is only two which may explain the routing mess as well. For example, Pin 182 is +5V and isn't routed on the front nor the back. This smells power and ground planes.

2 layers is cheaper to build, although indeed not that pretty.
