Maybe it was designed to be friendly to people with hearing disabilities. ( deaf ).
Or when in a loud place or a place with allot of noise or when someone has headphones on.
That would make sense since this computer runs loud with all the fans going.


Meant to evoke an association with PA-RISC gear?

It’s stored deep in my garage right now and I am to lazy to take it out.
Sorry. It’s winter, raining, and cold right now. Maybe in the summer.

Kind of, these where in service at the same time as the Netserver LC.
They are both loud computers that run NT4.0

Could you take a picture of them?

Thank you :)



If you need a fan shroud and cpu duct ( parts 89a and 89b ) . I would forget about trying to 3D print one.
Just add a fan to the rear of case and add heat sinks with fans to you cpu’s.

Blow the air out the back of the case.

My HP Kayak motherboards are made in Singapore and Malaysia.

HP use to have really great warranty support if anything ever went wrong with these computers all I had to do was call there customer support and they would ship me out a new part with out prejudice.
No questions asked.

That’s why I really liked HP computers. Great support.
