I found this one on a loading dock--someone has scrapped it partially.

One of the 8M memory board I have is missing 4 large chips.. I presume
these had something to do with the ECC.. I can't remember the part off
the top of my head, but I do have another baord like it.

I HATE WHEN PEOPLE DO THAT! I can't imagine someone actually could
use those chips (but they had a pretty gold top and looked important
I imagine..)

(takes deep breath)
