Could someone recommend which 030 CPU should I have for this card? I have few 33mhz, but I think I should get something else for this build?

Yes. I don't have working tf330 yet, can't test CPUs on it. And they were moderately happy on tf534 on 50mhz (2 out of 3).
I would buy 50mhz ok one, but it is Chinese source, so who knows if it is reprint or genuine 50mhz.

I bought my 50 MHz 030 from this listing: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1PCS-2PCS-MC68 ... 2716759505

It doesn't run hot at all.

And it is seems to be easier to build as well. 1 cpld and 2 RAMs. Less points where soldering may go wrong

Yes this was most of the motivation for the design. Keep it simple

Any feedback so far?
Have people received their boards? Has anyone been able to get one to boot up?

It will take one or two months before any meaningful results. Boards may still be in transit from China at this point.
