Quadra verisons of machines generally had a faster CPU, or had the non-LC version with FP.
Sadly, the Q800 was crippled because they wanted the 840AV to have a faster processor.
The Q800 board will work fine with a 40MHz 68040

There was an Apple PPC PDS upgrade for the 040 Quadras. If it was just a sticker on the front,
it probably had the upgrade.
