AKA the "P-box". They had one closed faceplate with (inadequate)
ventilation slits, and one open one (though it could be closed off with a
blocking plate). The side panel came off with a really big flathead
screw, if I remember correctly. They matched the 386i in design. Cooling
was ok for the time but not great for modern hot drives, and I wouldn't
trust the cabling at high speeds.
I had a pair of CDC Imprimis 327's in mine, hooked to a 3/60 with a
fishbowl 19" ECL mono monitor. Memories...
