View Full Version : Strange Label on My 5160 Case

March 14th, 2016, 09:21 AM
Was working on a new 5160 case / Motherboard / Power Supply that I got and noticed that in the back right corner of the chasis is a metal label with the number 400 stamped on it..

What is this? Is this from IBM or just something aftermarket?

Thanks for any info.

Quite possibly a label from the unit being inspected by the QC inspector. Such labels are pretty common in electronics manufacturing.

My 5170's have a stamping badge on the inside of the case with 300 and 400

I also wonder what this badge means. It seems there are only a few numbers they put on these badges.

Nobody ever sees the ones that say 404.
