I plan on working out a way to run it full time again though - if I can save money elsewhere, I can afford to pay the power bill for it to run full time again.

I tend to have a large compute job that will keep the 14 CPUs busy
for a day, about once every other month. 

>I'm still trying to track down another 2 gig RAM kit for it, so I can max out the RAM. I've only got 12 CPUs in there, since I don't have another working CPU board, and I also need that slot to run the PCI I/O module to talk to the fibre channel arrays. I have three A5000's loaded up with 147gig drives. I'd love to find some A5200 arrays, since those hold 22 drives (mine hold 14). 

I have one A5200, it's definitely the nicest array I've ever owned.
Love the LCD touch-panel.
