This O2 started as a pretty standard R5000 180MHz. That doesn't tell the whole story though, as it still has a raft of its original details--Granite keyboard, mouse, camera, and speakers, mic, cardboard boxes, printed manuals, etc. Something of a treasure trove of memorabilia. It was also my first SGI, so holds a special place.

I recently swapped out the drive for a quieter IBM with a fresh install of 6.5.22m. I also upgraded the PSU fan to a quiet Noctua. (I saved the originals in both cases.)

Because it is nearly silent and has tiny power consumption, this has become my daily-use SGI.

Very nice! What magnitude of performance gains or response times have you noticed between the 180Mhz R5K and the 300Mhz RM5200?

Also, have you noticed any heat issues arising from combining the 300Mhz CPU with the Noctua fan upgrade?

Yes, nice machine. Similar to my one. I wish to have a 1600 SW adapter for it.
