The power tracks may not cope when you stack too much of those and the first one may burn, taking the computer or boards with it.

Not recommended to stack more than two and don't use power-hungry boards (like a Voodoo board, for example).

Also, how you'll stack the boards? It will wrap back into the motherboard.

So if I provide the power it can work? I was asking because I noticed that the old amiga os 4 boards are getting cheaper and cheaper, but would like more cards.. Adding 5 V lines is doable


thanks!

Sure thing, just solder the 5 & 3.3V rails and you are good to go.
