It is marked as a VARStation ... a PII (prob cable of PIII up to
600mhz) using what I belive is an Intel SE440BX motherboard.

Absolutely nice case... great cooling (really LARGE fan in the
back).... if I can find rails, when I eventually move into the P4
generation, I'll probably use that case (provided I can find rails).

In the meantime I might use it for a dual PIII or a dual PPRO
box (either with 2x1M cache PPRO 200 chips, or 2x333 PII overdrive
