I have a C3 in a large rack mount. The C3 had a 6502, 6809 and 8080
in it. They advertised a board (that I have the schematics for, but have
never owned) that would add a z80 and an intersil 6100 (pdp on a chip).
I never heard of a machine so equipped called a 'C5' though. The ex-OSI
dealers I have asked about it all say it never worked completely right and
the resulting system was so different from any dec machine that coding
for it ended up being almost a complete rewrite anyway.
