I would agree that the CPU and IO boards are particular to the machine,
but my memory seems to be standard ECC memory for MicroVax 3xxx.
This is my config:
MS650 M7622-A x 2
I assume the M9060 is the QBUS terminator, although the literature I have
describes it as a "Load module".
I have a 12-29258-01 DSSI Terminator on an external R215F cabinet.
The literature I have describes your M9715-AA as Q-BUS PADDLE CARDS.
I am not sure what that means.
Your KZQSA is quite a desirable item :-)
