This is my new Indigo² Impact 10000. I just did a test install of IRIX 6.5.22 and it worked great.

Everything works fine. At the weekend I'll get a High Impact-AA with TRAM extension instead of the current "normal" High Impact. Also the RAM and hard disk will be expanded.

Specs:
  • R10000 @ 175 MHz
  • 128 MB RAM (will be expanded)320 MB RAM
  • High Impact (will be changed to a High-AA Impact with TRAM)High-AA Impact with TRAM
  • 9 GB HDD (will be expanded to 73 GB)73 GB HDD
  • IRIX 6.5.22f

Also I have included a photo of it.

Nice Indigo2!

If you want a 195MHz CPU there's one on eBay.de for 20buck o.b.o.

BTW: you mention Maximum Impact-AA, did you mean High Impact-AA?

Hi,

yes I meant High Impact-AA, my mistake. :D

Thank you very very much for the CPU auction hint, just bought it. :)

I've upgraded it now.

  • RAM: 128 MB -> 320 MB
  • Graphics Card: High Impact -> High-AA Impact with 4 MB TRAM
  • Hard Disk: 9 GB -> 73 GB

Once the new cpu arrives it will also get a 195 MHz CPU.

I don't understand what you mean with 'overheating'. There's no thermal shutdown on an Indigo2 -- it will run until it burns down, so to say.

I have a MaxImpact Indigo2, with the TRAM option cards and a G160 network card. It runs hot, surely. I used to have a cat who loved to bask in the exhaust heat. But overheat? Nope.

Beware that the Indigo2 chassis is divided into two sections. The part where the CPU and memory are is ventilated by the PSU and the airflow is front to back. The part where the graphics are has a dedicated fan and the airflow is from the back to the left side (or bottom, if it sits on it's feet). If you place the Indigo2 in a cramped space it may end up circulating the air!

The TRAMs get very hot, but that's not why they die. It's only the TRAM option cards that die, you don't hear much of HighImpact of MaxImpact boards where the 1MB 'base' TRAM goes bad. The TRAM option cards die because of mechanical and thermal stress in combination with aging soldering joints. I repaired a couple of them, you can find more details there.

Amazing how an Indigo2 with MaxIMPACT almost manages to hit the power consumption of a well loaded Tezro! That's progress! :)

It's also the reason why I've not pursued a MaxIMPACT board-set for my Indigo2. I simply do not do enough 3D stuff with it to justify the cost of the board and the extra heat/power consumption.

If I want to do any textured 3D stuff, that's what my Fuel is for :)
