Hm, a DHV11... it's a quad, right? I think it's okay to have it before the
other cards, but I don't know if it's in the right place in the 4th
slot of a BA123... I would take this out and have the DEQNA, the TQK and 
the RQDX in the 5th and 6th slot, and a grant card in the 4th... I had
some problems with the position of the DHV11 in one of my machines.
Anyway, I don't have my 630QB-whatever manual handy, so I might be wrong
:) (like if the DHV11 doesn't use the 3rd and 4th "fingers", which is a 
C-D interconnect in the BA123 backplane's 4th slot I think...) 
Was the machine configured like this originally?

I don't think it's an RQDX3, it's a RQDX1 (RXDX?) or RQDX2

Yes, it seems to  be broken... hm... I gotta hav a coffee, I'm unusable
