One of us tried to repair them. He has experience in these things but
was not able to get them back to live.

I don't care much about the look. The R10k Impact is a bit limited in
memory / bus bandwith and IO, but still a nice machine.

Well. I bought it (without PCI options and single head) about a year ago
for 300,-EUR. R12k-300 (E)SI Octanes are still the "sweet spot".

To be onest: I don't have an application for that many CPUs. I need one
or two faster CPUs, not several slower CPUs. Nevertheles an Onyx2 would
be a nice machine for "personal workstation". ;-)
