1) This beast needs 750 watts to run, hence the extra p/s. Make sure
the switch to the primary (larger) p/s is always on. Use the switch on

2) There is a screw on the back of the chassis which holds it in.
3) A Quad will take any ultra-series slot-type CPU, excepting the
440mHz CPU from the Netra T 1405 (167-480mHz). See #4.

Feel free to contact me directly if you have any other questions. I
