Silicon Graphics Octane Model CMNB015ANF195
This Octane is a bit of a frankenstein machine because it’s made up of a bunch of mismatched parts. I bought a couple Octane shells that had the chassis, skins (most of them, at least) and power supplies intact. I then bought a pair of IP30 system boards with CPUs and RAM and paired them with the SE graphics cards I had already accumulated (my first Octane came with an SE card, then I subsequently bought an SE card with the EVO board). More detail on trying to get all these machines working can be found on my Retro Day Fail post. Basically, this machine is all of the working parts from that adventure.
The most interesting thing about this machine is that it has Silicon Graphics asset stickers on the frontplane and PCI cage cover. Otherwise it is a fairly low end launch-era Octane aside from the SE graphics which weren’t available until later on.
Like my other Octane, I also replaced the incandescent bulbs in the lightbar with a warm white LED.
