Is there a question? :D But, dual cpus will allow multiple, concurrent, programs to run smoother and to a greater amount of their potential. Multi-threaded single programs will see the greatest benefit. And correct two 550mhz cpu's != one 1.1ghz cpu. And no, it's not hard to reconfig windows for mul...

The system's cheap...but then you'd need a Shark or RAMAC for storage and a 3494 or 3590 tape drive for loading the system. And power...oh the power you'd need :)

Without a processor Feature Code it's hard to get a good fix on the system. Unless you know it's working, that it comes with a working twinax breakout and terminal with cables, and either cdrom or tape media to reload the system...it may not be worth getting. They are nice systems when they're runni...

The Mid-Level stuff is usually called the ILC or Internal Licensed Code. And OS/400 is the biggest pain in the butt to get ahold of. As a general rule...from IBM, you cannot buy OS/400, i5/os or whatever it is now. It's kinda like SGI, you get a support contract and can then request the media and OS...

Oh well, whatever. Lest we forget that the SGI Infinite Performance stuff was nothing more than ATI FireGL cards.

My 4d/70 was up almost 4 years straight...basically since I'd gotten it to when it crashed a month or two ago. It's been a very reliable box aside from the pinstripe of death. Just a quick reset and its back up and running.

You have a scanner or programmer to verify that you're not getting any knock? I think at 4400ft you may get away with just a 3.5/6" pulley and nothing else, but not a 3.2". Heck, even with a decent amount of supporting mods quite a few people have knock with a 3.4" pulley. Not that it...

Well...the 95RON is about 90-92 Octane here in the states with the (R+M)/2 method which is around midgrade depending on location within the country. Here for me in Maryland it's midgrade, premium being 93/94 or around 97-99RON or so. But...brand to brand the fuel is basically the same; filling stati...

A 3.2" Pully 'eh....you'd better hope there's alot more mods on there to support that before you chunk a piston. To get a 3.2" pully usually entails either a cam/rockers, headers/ported exhaust manifolds, 3" Downpipe with ubend delete, a good intake and to be safe an intercooler or al...

Is there no video connector at all or possibly a video connector with just 3 mini bnc connectors(the w3 part of 13w3)? Also, from the terminal, when it powers up it should go through all the motions and display the keyboard/scsi/speaker/mouse or whatever...after keyboard you should be able to hit F1...

Must be a firmware thing...because I've only been able to have SAS/SATA disks working on their respective controllers. Backplane and cable are the same though.

SAS and SATA are physically interchangable. The same cables and backplanes will work for either. But opperationally they are just as different as SCSI and ATA, so no, you cannot plug a SATA drive into a SAS adapter and have it work(or vise-versa). Unless someplace there is a hybrid system, but I don...

It's running 4.0.5F and does so quite well. I was oh so lucky to manage to get the OS and compiler tapes with it when I bought it. The main hd was completely dead, the rest of the hardware is pretty much original. There's a hinv of it in the hinv section too.
