Sun T2000 Niagara Noodling. Part 2.

First part was here.

Its all very neat and tidy under the hood. Swappable drive bays to the front.Two swappable power units to the back. RAM all lined up like so many Terra Cotta Warriors.

"Where all the CPUs?", has a new answer in these multi-core days as the CPU count diverges from the CPU chip count. Ours is a 4 CPU unit but an untrained eye cannot tell too easily by just looking at the motherboard setup.

The red cable snaking through the middle is the SATA cable and is responsible - so the hardware people tell me - for moving data at unspeakable speeds to/from the hard disks.
