Just got this one from Adrenaline. The OS is on a 73GB 15k Atlas II, which is quite nice and surprisingly quiet when it's not accessing. I recently won an eBay auction for a 1GB RAM kit, so that really can't get here fast enough.

Code:
CPU: MIPS R5000 Processor Chip Revision: 2.1
FPU: MIPS R5000 Floating Point Coprocessor Revision: 1.0
1 180 MHZ IP32 Processor
Main memory size: 192 Mbytes
Secondary unified instruction/data cache size: 512 Kbytes on Processor 0
Instruction cache size: 32 Kbytes
Data cache size: 32 Kbytes
FLASH PROM version 4.12
Integral SCSI controller 0: Version ADAPTEC 7880
  Disk drive: unit 1 on SCSI controller 0 (unit 1)
  CDROM: unit 4 on SCSI controller 0
Integral SCSI controller 1: Version ADAPTEC 7880
On-board serial ports: tty1
On-board serial ports: tty2
On-board EPP/ECP parallel port
CRM graphics installed
Integral Ethernet: ec0, version 1
Iris Audio Processor: version A3 revision 0
  PCI Adapter ID (vendor 0x9004, device 0x8078) PCI slot 1
  PCI Adapter ID (vendor 0x9004, device 0x8078) PCI slot 2
Video: MVP unit 0 version 1.4
AV: AV1 Card version 1, Camera not connected.
Vice: TRE


And obviously CRM graphics, albeit at a very CPU-intensive resolution:
Code:
Graphics board 0 is "CRM" graphics.
        Managed (":0.0") 1600x1000
        32 + 32 bitplanes
        board revision 2, CRM revision C, GBE revision B
         Monitor 0 type: ACR 20
        Channel 0:
         Origin = (0,0)
         Video Output: 1600 pixels, 1000 lines, 60.00Hz (tamasi_1600x1000_60___1031)

I thought the name was familiar :) Those 15k Atlas II drives are the best from what I found
. I had tried a couple Cheetah 15k.3s and were extremely loud, and slower.

Cool. If you get a chance, even the 200 mhz cpu is worth grabbing. The additional cache makes a big difference. The 180 is a little bit slow, altho it's fine as an X-Window. O2's are cute. If J Clark had stayed at SGI, they'd have dual-core 1.2 ghz cpus, four times as much faster memory and sata drives in that same little box. Would be a nifty desktop :(

CPU upped to R12k 300MHZ - the speed difference is incredible! I'm posting this from Firefox on the O2 right now, whereas with my 200Mhz R5k I couldn't even start Firefox.

I was able to keep the PCI riser in there, all it required was removing it from the metal bracket and inserting it back into the PCI slot after the CPU module was screwed down onto the frame.

Boot times were noticeably faster from the boot-up screen to login window. Applications launch much faster. I'll attempt to put it under some load later and see how it fares.

Congratulations!

Yes, the speed difference with that kind of swapping is huge. You could also try to find the 400 mhz CPU. I was looking for it a lot of time but then I found one at very good price. My O2 had a R12000 at 270 mhz and the improvement was great :).

Like dclough I found that 300MHz was both available and at affordable prices and that as an upgrade (in my case from R10k 195MHz) it makes a massive difference to overall system responsiveness in an O2.

The 400MHz CPU is of course the dream but - as it's the top end - demand is so much higher that you have to get very lucky; we can't all find a 400MHz CPU for our O2s for tiny money :(. While we'll all keep searching, the R12k 300MHz option is a great upgrade - congrats dclough :).
