It's a small server board. Many companies have legacy IO and test cards that are ISA based. Sometimes these run into the thousands of dollars each, if they are even available at all. With the demise of many legacy systems, PI, PII, PIII etc, these boards fill a need for continuation of availability for the interface. The price is high due to this fact, since demand will likely be low. The rotation of the processor, northbridge and RAM may be due to circuit trace issues involving the ISA slots or may have been necessitated by design as the board may have been initially developed for a proprietary solution and they decided that offering it retail would make a bit more money.
