my XT 5160 arrived today

Rate this Entry
so, thee XT arrived today. pretty good shape.. too good, really.. the interior is way too clean.. very little dust trapped in front of chassis grill holes (the black round holes).
i took some pics after wiping it down pretty good.. I'm really satisfied with the exterior condition.
I can't fire it up until the remainder of my parts arrive.
it has the 256K motherboard, but the cards appear to have lots of RAM.. i may setup an ESD station and pull-out the cards to see if I can determine how much memory there really is.
-- cork foot pads will be in demand for the bottom.

i'm not sure i trust many people to clean the inside of a computer properly.. i hope this is a sign of very little usage, which i doubt.

I have attached pics to see if you guys could help with a few answers.
  • the power supply shows a date of 1989?
  • the PSU fins in the back are a little offset from the chassis hole?
  • there is no 2nd hard drive behind the 2nd HD face plate.. i suspected so, but i was hoping otherwise. (:
