The machine was confirmed working before it was shipped to me unfortunately it wouldn't boot when it arrived. After moving the HI+I2VFI assembly one slot up and making sure they were seated securely the machine now boots. Yay me :)

It came with 2 disksleds for the 3.5" bays. The enclosure itself is in good condition but there's a bit of scratching here and there.
The upper front door protecting the 5.25" and top 3.5" bay is complete and the larger door has the IMPACT R10000 badge. I also got a set of vertical foot stands which I intend to use. It also came with an extra mouse an old style model with Granite color.

The initial 256Mb RAM is fitted as 8x32Mb leaving 4 slots vacant.

With the machine I also got an SGI original 1.6" 4.3Gb Quantum drive. I promptly replaced that with the Seagate Barracuda 36ES2 that I had in my Indy.

I've aquired 8x64Mb RAM from an old PC server. The machine now has 8x64Mb + 4x32Mb for a whopping total of 640 Mb RAM.
