Re: Tezro, Quad-R16K/1GHz (16MB L2), 4GB, V12/DM3, RAID

I have all of this hardware on hand (with the exception of a router brick) and will try a few combinations this weekend to see what works together.

Re: Help with Tezro

Remove the node board and reseat it, see if this helps, as these machines don't really like being moved around. I am glad you got it running! On a side note... It is very rarely an "unseated" node board and the only reason I am commenting on this is to discourage people from pulling node ...

Re: Origin 3200 Console Access

The DS1780 is an environment monitoring chip, same chip that is a nuisance in the Fuel systems. You should be able to disable this in the L1 just to get it going. I believe it is "ENV OFF" but check the docs for that system.

Re: My first Octane

I wouldn't pull the graphics board unless you need to. Get it tested first. I can send you a bootable drive and graphics cable cheap to get you going.

What graphics do you have?

Re: How frequently you use your SGI (in 2017)?

At any given time in my house there will be 5-7 SGIs running and granted most are doing nothing but the screensaver but they are alive. Any graphics station will have my kid or one of his friends playing the demo games. It is fun to watch them pass the xbox one and go play cycles or doom. I have my ...

Where do you put that fscking thing? It's bigger than the woman in the pic!!

You put a pillow on it and use it as a stool.



Too big to put on a desk, to beautiful to put underneath :D

Re: 700mhz Fuel on Ebay, low start bid USA (not mine)

There are plenty out there but they never make it to Ebay or the forums. I have dealt with these a pallet full at a time and you can tell that the companies were just swapping parts from one to another in an attempt at keeping them going. Out of ten machines 8 will be missing power supplies and fans...

The reasons why should be obvious to anybody who's ever used been in the same room as one.


The Octane is the one system that amazes non-SGI people the most. The shear weight, incredible construction and cool shape is something they can't wrap their head around.

Re: Which SGI box is your favorite and why?

For me it has always been the Onyx2 deskside. They are beautiful machines although tough to keep going and not a practical toy. Second would be O2+. What a great little machine and together with a 1600 display was so cool. I still have the clear prototype looking 1600 monitor but nothing to drive it...
