Perfect.

Now it just needs some 3d software to do some renders. ;)

At some point I must look at acquiring the appropriate 3D software for this machine.

After all, this was my first SGI machine and it's the reason why I went on to acquiring more SGI machines. (The first SGI machine that I ever saw in the flesh was an O2.)

Even though they're known to be shaky little machines from a reliability point of view, they definitely have the coolness factor going for them! :D

Wow, that thing is mint! Any idea of the date of manufacture?

401 MHz?
Nice machine though, bit more memory and you could run discreet flint, you would though have to import your media, unless something attaches to the AV1, I don't know of anything except the o2 Camera. Oh and you'd need a second external drive for the framestore. I have a flint o2 with an AV2 board and it runs actually quite well without setting the world alight. I bet the dual display is interesting.

When I bought the R12K module, the person who I bought it from had damaged some of the ceramic caps on it and I ended up by having to scavenge some caps off a spare R10K module that I had lying around. the 1MHZ difference in speed could be as a result of the fact that the replacement caps weren't exactly the same value as the original caps.

I still want to go through this module with a fine toothed comb, as I want it to clock at exactly 400MHZ(and really take some time in doing so).

Hence I need the Weller SMT soldering station that I posted in "Stuff to buy". (As it will be a one stop shop.)

I sourced parts from all over the world to put this machine together, so there is no single date of manufacture for the machine, I'm afraid.

Heh, I'd just describe it as a 0.25% overclocked CPU and leave it at that :)

Nice! The Chameleon card is a color space converter. The source code of the driver used to be on the Developer Toolbox site as an example. But I guess only the Barco software (Creator) can make real use of it.

One of the O2 machines that I acquired as a donor machine for this one had the COCOPCI (Colour Chameleon) card installed in it.

I am aware that these cards serve basically no function unless you have the relevant Creator software (which I don't currently have).

I chose to install the card in the machine, as they are rather rare and they were an option that was available for the O2 back in the day. (Even though it currently serves no actual purpose.)

Multigen Creator? I might actually have that, we used it on our SGIs at work extensively back in the day, I'll take a look...

No, Barco creator. I should have the installation media somewhere, but alas, I don't think I have the installation keys ...

I found my Multigen Creator installation but alas it is the NT version, copyright on the CD is year 2000. Looks like Computer Associates is still in business but any mention of Creator has been scrubbed from their website, yet more abandon-ware. Strange, they charged big money for it back in the day:
