Octane 2 dual R14k, 4.3gb ram, GigE, ESI+TRAM

Unread postby uridium » Tue Aug 26, 2014 4:19 am

My Octane 2 used for dev work, desktop and generally daily-driver UNIX system.

It's a delight to drive an Octane series system after nearly 8 years and moving east. Today I managed to get an video card working in it. THe v8pro I purchased off fleabay is DOA sadly and I didn't have the ability to test it 2 years ago when I was acquiring parts. I've learnt. I've been using an O2 180Mhz since '07 when I moved to Sydney and doing >95% of my fiddling and coding on it. It's just too slow when I'm building larger things and memory is low. So, here is my workhorse to augment the O2.

Thanks veganman for the prodding and advice to get this thing up and running to it's current state again :D

History of the system:

I pushed the chassis and skins through Sydney streets on a hand-trolley with Freespace (Steve) as he needed a PSU for his Octane(1) and we had no idea where in Redfern we were going. It was just a PSU and a chassis and xbow. He stashed the case here at my place for a number of years and I stared at it longingly. After 4-5 years I asked him if he was still interested in it, and if he'd consider selling it. He was apologetic and had forgotten about it and offered it to me for free (Awww.. :~) .. so after a health scare for $aging_parent, I headed back to Perth and started cleaning out my room of crimes. I broke down my old Octane(1) with v1.3 xbow and sent the ram and video cards to Sydney. So I then assembled bits, fleabayed some CPU's and a defective v8pro (grr!), and here are. Foolishly I took the ESI's off the mounting boards and left them. Not bright. I then cut and shaped some metal to hold things 'just so' (tm) and here we are. The v8pro's holes don't line up and the one I purchased had no hook clips. Hook clips I took off when I left the old carrier boards which is back in Perth. (..not my brightest hour).

Recently I stumbled across the GigE card on fleabay for cheap. It's nice. :) This'll be very pleasurable compiling C/C++, Fortran, Ada and running LiSP code compared to the puddly O2. :)
