Re: Octane2, 2x400MHz, 8GB, VPro V12

I believe the CD-ROM enclosure has 2 big ol' centronics 50 pin connectors. The cable goes from 50pin to high density 68pin.

Re: Octane2, 2x400MHz, 8GB, VPro V12

8GB is a lot - it was a bit of curiosity to max out the system and see how it performs. The system is exclusively a Softimage|3D machine and shader development machine. Considering the rarity of the RAM I may pull out 4GB and keep it as backup, or put it back on the market :). Mopar5150 gave me that...

Quieting the Octane. Maintain thermal control

I spent last night looking over the different threads on softening the noise Octane systems generate. From what I gathered this is what you all have done or recommend to be done: 1) Replace one or all of the fans in the PSU, Drive bay and XBow with newer, quieter fans. 2) Voltage regulator for the D...

Octane2, 2x400MHz, 8GB, VPro V12

Built a machine for diving back into Softimage. Mopar5150 set me up straight with all sorts of goodies. PCI cage is packed away until I need it. I found a deal on 8GB of original Kingston 2GB memory packs, unopened. Crazy lucky. I've been configuring and fiddling all week. Soft runs wonderfully too ...

Re: VXA-2 DAT drive under Irix?

hahaha - I'm such a newb. Thank you for that clarification.

Where would one start in understanding what I need to add to the entry in the master.d/scsi file?

I'll plug n play first to see if I can get the system to recognize.

VXA-2 DAT drive under Irix?

I bought a Tandberg VXA-2E (external) DAT drive ($25) and was hoping to get it to run in Irix 6.5. Does anyone have experience with this? It supports DAT 160 tapes. Was even considering once running just popping into my octane. Drive Details http://www.tandbergdata.com/default/index.cfm/support/disc...
