Silicon Graphics Octane Model CMNB015ANG300
This is my main SGI machine that I leave hooked up to keyboard/mouse/monitor. I’m trying to build it up to somewhere around the best configuration that could have been purchased in the 1998-1999 time frame. It does already have the newer revision IP30 (as seen in late-model Octanes and all Octane2s) so it’s not exactly all period appropriate as it is.
It came with an ESI (SE) graphics board but I have since replaced it with an MXI board.
The incandescent bulbs in the front panel light module were burnt out so I replaced them with a single diffused “warm white” LED.
Update 7 Jul 2017 I added 512MB of RAM and swapped the PSU out for a Cherokee 747W version. This machine is almost an Octane2 now.
Update 29 July 2017 I finally got around to installing the drivers for the Personal Video (EVO) board I had installed earlier, only to find that it causes the monitor output to be different in a way that my 19” LG LCD doesn’t like one bit… I get output that flickers to black and stays that way for several seconds, repeatedly. Plugged the output into my widescreen Viewsonic LCD and it doesn’t have any problems. So, in the meantime I’ve moved the EVO card over to my other functioning Octane, phobos. Also stole another 512MB of RAM from my parts Octane.
Update 16 Dec 2017 I picked up another frontplane to replace the faulty one from one of my other Octanes, but since this new frontplane has a v1.4 Xbow chip I decided to put it in my primary Octane so it has the most up to date hardware. Now, this machine is equivalent to an Octane2 since it has the newer frontplane, power supply and mainboard.
