nice to see all those little blanking spots filled with useful toys :D

oh man, I'm getting a headache looking at that :)

added: I'm not sure if it would be able to get my heart racing quite like a loaded onyx deskside though ;)

I'm not sure. This was put together a part at a time. The carrier I found with 1 V12 DCD in it. I already had the other one.

yeah, though I said onyx and not onyx 2. Still puts a smile on your face. With the onyx there's always that little thought in the back of your mind that the thing will blow up in your face as soon as you turn the key :P

Sorry. I need to read a bit better. :) I had a Deskside ONYX2 let out the magic smoke on me one time. :( My ONYX is way in the back in storage. It is the one that I had 4 RMs in with the Rack Power Boards. I'll snap some pics when I get to it. :)

I might actually take you up on that. I owe some money to some people, and my wife's car needs to be fixed.

Holy crap. That's some serious hardware right there!
Was the dual-V12/DCD a lucky score or did you use the big bucks?

I actually traded stuff for every bit in that machine. All it is missing is a dual 600 CPU module, and maybe some more RAM. It only has one 600 in it. :(
