Description

The object consists of a single cabinet with two compartments. Both the front and back doors are missing. The object has a portrait orientation. A few loose parts have been packaged in a small plastic bag, which is attached to the object. Also loose are two pieces of plastic. There is a row of power supplies at the top. There are 6 rows of plug in logic cards which plug in from the front. This includes 16 core memory modules The cards are connected with a wired back plane at the back. At the bottom is a row of fans and air filters.

The system is currently stored on it's side. As a result the front of some card guides have slipped sideways (toward the ground). This tilts the cards at a funny angle. If a card is removed, care must be taken to correctly align the card guides before plugging the card back in.
