what cpu or hopefully cpus could be in there?? what you think?
Dual 195, dual 250, dual 300 or dual 400. Doubt it would be dual 600 on account of older motherboard.
:Octane: 1x 400Mhz R12k, 1Gb, V8, 6.5.30
:O2: 300Mhz R5200, 384Mb, 6.5.30, FPA with :1600SW: [300Mhz R12k project in the works]

Indeed, one of my Octane2 has a 2x360mhz module. I wonder if a 2x550mhz cpu module exists since I've never seen one for sale ??

I forget the term used for that, but it seems to be common among various SGI boards that I have seen

Welcome to the forum. :)

Thats a good start you have there. I Hope she serves you well.

Lucy is a rather strange name for a machine though, how did you come to that?

Almost all, of the SGI boards that I have seen have this type of rework, so theres no need to worry.

i hope she will serve me well, (like mentioned before, i'm still waiting for a 13w3 adapter to test if she works at all)
in germany we have a expression called : "geht ab wie ne luzi" which u can use to describe a fast car or fast machine or what so ever ;)
so that's where the name comes from :D
