Well, I picked one up. It is brand new. If it is a fake, it is
very "nice" fake... the logo looks pretty genuine...
I'm guessing by the model # of the case it is an Enlight case.
top of the "Installation Guide" says "EN-8991001 Installation Guide
Could this have possibly been for some sort of prototype, for internal
SGI use of some sort, or the like ?
Doesn't really matter all that much to me.. it looks nice, has a layout
that will work for what I want, and I could take or leave the plain
vanilla sgi (all lowercase letters) logo.
