Do you have a spec in mind for your Octane2?

Well I do have something that maybe of interest, but It depends if you are in a rush, I'm in the middle of sorting out another machine at the moment.

It's an Octane 2 with V12 in very good condition. Would have to clone the disk or do you a new install.
