Miserable white stranded wire. The CPU card connected to the FP as well
through a molex header with the same cheap white wire. I built my 8800 in
a weekend, and the wire from the FP to the MB took the longest.
Anything to save a buck here and there. Lots of corners skipped on the
8800. So much for quality construction of "old stuff'! :)
The Integrand has a power supply that one could arc-weld with.
