I'm still not sure whether this one's a keeper... This is a VERY early O2, it has a handwritten sticker inside which has a (serial?) number of 1000 something (got the covers on right now so can't check). I've got a DVD drive, plenty of memory, a bag full of SCA drives, A/V card, moosecam AND a second O2 for parts (with scratched plastics). Wonder how much these would be worth...

-sigh-

if you get sick with it, let me know. might go through the trouble again and make it a testbed for nekoware (i ain't gonna spoonfeed the crybaby no more)

is this an r5k-style, capable to house 2 HDs?

congrats on getting it up+running man

I will. I'll try NetBSD on it first, it's supposed to have accelerated X...

Yup. I think I have three sledges too, and a bag of disks between 18 and 72 gigs.

I like the neon lights. I wonder how many tubes I could shove in the onyx.

Some pics of teh tubes. It's just two 10cm tubes, and inverter which steals it's power from the cdrom drive. After taking the pics I've replaced the blue led fan with a normal black one for less noise (it's now a near-silent Nexus).

I want to, but I don't think it is the best for the plastic inside to be constantly irradiated with UV light. I had a UV light with some glowing stuff in an old PC for a couple of years and the once snow-white pci cards had turned dull yellow, and maybe weakened as well. But it was obviously only the parts that weren't in shadow of the light. Clean nonsmoking house of course...

Otherwise, definitely, yes. Maybe purple EL wire wrapped around the base, if I ever find some side skirt skins. The tricky part is not cutting any holes or using adhesive that will leave residue, because I will get sick of it after a few months...

What model of fan is the Nexus you mentioned? I have an O2 which I'd like to silence as much as possible.

Whatever "silent" 80x80 fan Nexus happened to sell a few years back. Now they're selling this (mine was all black):

How odd, some stores here list that fan as discontinued, but it's still widely available elsewhere, eg. at quietpc.com.

Is it much of a job replacing the fan in the PSU? Anything special worth noting as to how one does it? I should do
the same mod to my main O2 aswell, which is a 600 too.

Ian.

PS. I actually already have a couple of Artic F8 TC fans, but I'm not sure whether they'd be appropriate, ie. where/how
would one position the temp sensor? They're certainly very quiet though, fited some in my gf's PC and she now has
the quietest PC I've ever come across. :D

It's actually quite simple. Pull out the PS, open it - it's only got three screws if my memory serves me right. The lid is L-shaped and will open easily. The fan itself is a bit tight fit but should be easily removed. I think the power connector was different than what the fan had, but since it's just Ground and +12V that was easily fixable (with heat shrink and using the original fan connector).

I replaced my fan with an AC-Ryan silent fan some weeks ago. Without a hardrive, a 5k O2 becomes almost silent. Very scary ....
