Me too! But I think a 4381, say or even a 9370, would be easier to work
on. Why? The 308X and 3090 (and I think also the 303X, although I know
less about them) were _water cooled_. Maybe I am biassed as an
electrical engineer, but I think that anything with water in it is bound
to make a mess sooner or later...
