Re: 600Mhz O2 CPU

I do have a vintage prom/eprom burner setup for 1980 to 1995 prom types. What kind of prom is it and I will look and see if my burner supports it.

Onyx2 no power

Anyone have a spare power supply for a Onyx2 deskside? I just plugged my deskside in today ... Flipped on the AC breakers in back and nothing happens on the front display at all. I maybe lucky and a AC fuse blew otherwise I will need a power supply.

The noise from the fans mask out any noise from the hard drives.

Re: Oynx2 Deskside no graphics,no scsi and stuck base card.

I thought I give you an update on the Onyx2. I finally got it going running IRIX 6.5.20. The unit had multiple hardware failures including noisy power supply, bad geometry card,five fried hard drives and one jammed CD drive!

Re: SGI Onyx2 up for auction -sold

It sold for $250. No I didn't get it... My wife limited me to $500 and after you subtract the $280 to ship it to me I would be over budget.
