And then you look into the VAX hardware reference guide on NetBSD
web site:

If it can be trusted, you either have a:

MicroVAX 3100 M10e with a BA42-A case (~ 4" high)
MicroVAX 3100 M20e with a BA42-B case (~ 6" high)

At a wopping 3.5 VUPs which mean you should not spent to much money
on upgrading it.
