Tezro Wanted

Unread postby Tezro Wanted » Mon Feb 27, 2017 7:19 am

Hi,
Looking for a nice Tezro case for a Workstation project. No need for a working Tezro as long as the case is fine.

Kind regards,
/O

Don't give him any working Tezros and if you sell him the chassis/skin TAKE EVERYTHING ELSE OUT OF IT.

Mr. Tezro Wanted I don't think you understand how expensive a Tezro (let alone a case) really is. You're looking at thousands of dollars in all likelihood.

We don't generally take kindly to people who destroy irreplaceable hardware to put bog standard PC shit inside, which is what I'm guessing you're gonna be doing.

If you're looking for a cheap, good looking case, keep on moving. Tezros on eBay regularly reach $15,000 in immaculate shape, and I paid around $2700 for mine when I had one.

Such a thing would be tremendously expensive and rare. I don't think you will be able to find an empty Tezro case, and a Tezro case with a Tezro in it is going to be absurdly expensive. Besides, you really shouldn't gut an SGI just to fill it with PC parts, that's what PC cases are for. Sorry...

That's blasphemy.

The whole point of of having an SGI to is to appreciate their unique qualities and to use IRIX.

You make Panda cry. I'd give my left ball for a Tezro. Such sexy machines.

Smells a bit like trolling. I imagine you're going to be in at least $500 for a good case, trouble is if anyone had a good case they'd put parts in it and keep it or sell it for at least $1000. For $500 I feel like you can get a lot better case, it just wouldn't say SGI. Tezro cases are just....awful. You might as well put a PC workstation behind the Tezro and wire the SGI logo to a powersupply if you just need the look. For as big as the case is, there's not a lot of room and no easy way to mount (micro,mini)ATX motherboards.

I'd hate to hear you're going to destroy a Fuel, but the Fuel case would be easier modify to accept a standard PC motherboard and the case would hold about the same gear unless you just shove random junk in the right hand side of the Tezro.

I'm glad I'm not the only one in disbelief of the OP.

Im willing to part out my tezro and sell you the case (good condition).

Im asking about 10.000 Euros excluding shipping, which is additional 5.000 Euros.

Seriously: Im happy all forum members are on the same side.

If one would have a bad-ass looking workstation like pc case, i would recommend a HP C8000 case, which is on ebay.


Regarding the fuel casemod: I think some HP PC Case is like the fuel case (i believe its the HP kayak), just for pc components. Maybe one could fit fuel caseparts around the pc one.

I completely get what you are all saying....but didn't cinenate35 have to return two tezro's he bought of ebay because they were in too bad a condition to restore:

viewtopic.php?f=4&t=16731016&p=7394250&hilit=tezro+ebay#p7394250

if the OP is serious then maybe that is one avenue to explore - maybe he can be put in contact with the ebay seller if they are still available.

cinenate35 fixed up one and sold it, the other he was parting out (he felt the midplane/logic board was at fault). Looks like he had everything but the chassis and midplane on ebay and here: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=16731342 I see the front panel sold on ebay, but most of the case plastics were unsold. That post is 2 months old, more parts could be gone and the OP would need to ask if he still has the chassis.
