Octane fan for drive bay not running?

I noticed the fan that is on the back of the Octane isn't moving.

Does that only come on if it gets hot? Or is something amiss? The powersupply fan runs and it feels like the xbow fan is pulling air.

Any ideas?

Thanks. :)

Re: Boxed SGI 1600SW monitor

Oh jeez, nice. Which one is it? Is it the Silicon Graphics bug logo or the SGI text logo?

I'm in Marina Del Rey/Los Angeles.

Re: BASH the SGI font logo

I remember seeing the new branding and thinking “um, what is 3D about that?” Went from a 3D logo to a 2d one. Seemed like a perfect allegory for the type of minds that took over from the previous ones. Very flat and two dimensional. I ended up liking it later. Primarily the Octane 2 color scheme. Te...

Re: Octane Dual 400. EMXI Card. Arrived. Problem.

Just saw your two messages. Hmm. Yeah I should probably return. Ian told me he could give me a good price on a dual 400mhz.

Even though I was able to get it running I am betting it’ll be intermittent.

Re: Octane Dual 400. EMXI Card. Arrived. Problem.

Ok, I tried to flatten out that corner crunch more, not even sure that has anything to do with the problem. But, it did fire up and stay up for a while. It is surviving multiple reboots too. I ran a render test with the dual 400mhz and it eats up very high settings in Lightwave rather fast. I run on...

Re: Octane Dual 400. EMXI Card. Arrived. Problem.

Well the pins on the mobo side are fine. Its just those pins that are possibly damaged are inside the little rectangle plastic housings. I can kind of see them from the side as they jump from the CPU board into the little plastic guide housings. I'll try and find a looking glass. But, say one is dam...

Octane Dual 400. EMXI Card. Arrived. Problem.

Well, a few parts arrived today. The dual 400mhz proc which I won for $82 on ebay. It was described as never used and did come in a usual sealed processor bag. The box was pretty mashed up though. There were two connectors slightly bent. The two white square pin inserts on either side were bent towa...

Mystery Origin 200 Dual CPU revealed.

So I purchased this Origin 200 from a craigslist ad over a year ago for $100. It was a garage sale that had multiple computers and tech stuff. I saw the Origin and had to go look at it. The guy lived in Thousand Oaks and said his company used to develop things for SGI and that they sent them this Or...

One drive sled to rule them all...... :shock:

:lol:

Though it is turning out that indigo2 drive sleds may be even more rare.

Re: Octane arrived. Advice on small problem.

I've done it and it works. You can also do the same with another device : Dr Bott SGI Saver. You can sometimes find them cheap on ebay. I've never seen one of these for sale. I mean, amazon seems to have them but they are more expensive than the multi link adapter... also it shows a picture of some...

Re: Octane arrived. Advice on small problem.

I have an HP EliteDisplay E241i for my Mac Pro, it simply will not display the image from the Octane properly. Colour is washed out and the image sits halfway across the panel. I recently bought a Dell 2407wfp which works perfectly with the Octane. There are quite a few of the older panels that wil...

Re: Octane arrived. Advice on small problem.

Well. ATM it only has the basic si card. I was under the impression that the mxe with Tram modules will help with gl texture displays. I’d mainly run it at 1600 res for the sw1600 But Ian said the little mlink adapters aren’t that great. I just bought an hp that is great for my daily 3d work. Super ...

Re: Octane arrived. Advice on small problem.

I’ve fired up the Octane. It’s run of the mill at the moment, but am getting parts at the moment. I’ll either win the bid on a dual 400mhz or get one Ian offered me. Whichever price gives way first. I’m looking at mxe with tram modules as well for good prices. Since I’m told I can desktop capture on...

Re: [EBay] Indigo 2 4400 250Mhz. Washington State. Not Mine.

Yeah, I felt it was a bit high. Though I must say, sleds for indigo2 seem the rarest item now days. I bought another o2 on ebay because it was $75. Its an r5k so it won't be something I spend a lot of time with but... the case was in such pristine condition that I felt $75 was worth the shell/ram/dr...
