I've got a Unisys 4-way Ppro 200 box in my basement near Minneapolis that
could go to a new home. It even has the fancy touch-screen front panel, RAID
card and everything.

It could use some Socket7 CPU fans with three wires to keep the fan speed
sensors happy- otherwise you have to turn off the alarm every time the box
restarts <grin> I'm using regular cooling fans for right now.
