As far as I can tell... none.  There is no machine matching this case.   
The closest you get is the rackmount 1400 and that has three honking  
huge power supplies along one side... this case only supports one power  
supply.  This actually looks like a fraud.

Don't know.  It looks a lot like a generic PC case that someone painted  
a door to look like an SGI for.
