I am curious about a few things.

Where did you get the 030 cpus from? As I understand it, they are no longer manufactured so these must be old/unsold stock?
The CPUs were Vesalia's stock.

That was not a decision based on the CPUs, but based on memory speed. The SD-Rams I use are Winbond 200MHz types. They can deliver data within 48ns after row-open. This can be achieved by running memory clock at 83.325MHz, which gives 12ns per clock cycle. Running the CPU at half of the memory clock is the evident solution.

I did that on ACA1230, but the ACA1231 is fully async. You can run it at almost any clock speed.
