The Amstrad CPC was my first ever computer, a British 8bit classic that found populatity home and abroad, especially in France and Spain. A machine that is steeped in nostalgia and retro computer memories for me, but like all old computers, they are slowly failing. We can spend all our time recapping, repairing and restoring them, but sometimes you just want a reliable retro gaming experience, and that's where the Just CPC4ATX comes in. Let's take a look at what it is.

Please note: No Amstrads were harmed in the making of this board. The creator has asked me to highlight that only NOS (New Old Stock) chips were used, CPC's were not sacrificed for its creation.
