It's the slowest SPARC that was ever made.  Ran at a stunning 14MHz and
had a slow, weird SCSI interface.  Same chassis as the 3/110, different
CPU board.

Drop a different board in there if you can.  4/600 would be idea but a
4/300 or 4/400 would work too, and they still have a bit of punch.  The
nice thing about the 3-slot chassis is that it's (relatively) cheap to run
and quiet.
