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...
