Here's the specs on my ex-Cray I2 with the Max Impact board set. I'm guessing that the granite CRT is an ex-Indy one (the guy I got it from had a bunch of Indy systems too) and that originally it would have had a white CRT to match the keyboard and mouse.

Now I just need to figure out something impressive to run on it!

congrats, pretty much as much indigo as you can get :D

Thanks - yeah, it is... I think I may have some larger-capacity RAM for it, but to be honest what with the graphics option and additional drive it's probably just about at the limit cooling-wise already - and 384 should be enough to play with! Only thing it's missing is the CD drive, but I think I can borrow one from one of my Sun machines if ever needed (I have the internal sled, just not the drive)

Do you have 12x 32MB SIMMs? Swapping to 8x 64MB (ideally single sided) or 4x 128MB (if you can find them!) could give you more RAM for less power/heat? I don't stretch the 384MB in my I2 but that's "only" an R4K so I tend to avoid multi-multi-tasking!

Nice machine - wish I'd "gone purple" when jumping into SGI ownership. Don't think I'd get away with adding a second I2 (having since acquired a Fuel and - lurking away under the table until uunix decides what to do with another one - an Octane, and see my .sig for the non-IRIX set-up).

For CDROMs, my I2 has happily read from / burned to a Yamaha 8824S (but not sure if you could boot from it). A CDROM sled is working its way up the list of desiderata.

aj, that penny Octane is all yours unless you don't want it.

Yes, the machine's got 12x32 at the moment - I hadn't actually thought of larger-capacity modules being less power-hungry, but maybe they are and so there's scope for boosting the RAM without contributing significantly to the heat.

I had the choice of a teal or purple machine, and that was a no-brainer as I really don't like the look of teal ones ;) I didn't know at the time that it had such a high-spec (I'm not sure that the previous owner did either, he'd never actually powered it up), and that it had its shipping box and feet.

Steve! Definitely. It's a beautiful system!

Did you see that I got the Origin loaded up as far as possible (it doesn't have the right router boards to take four nodes)? It does indeed have a snafu front-panel switch as you suspected, but I think that I can fix it. I left it running on Friday because it was a cold day and it kept the room nice and toasty ;)

Indigo2 MaxImpact is definitely a very nice Indigo2. Congrats.

I have both the router board(s) and the front panel switch but I'm on the wrong side of the Atlantic.
