Random Whitebox Quick Specs

Had been monitoring the ventilation system in a school since the late 1990s, only stopped because the power supply internally exploded. Replaced the PSU with a standard ATX PSU and an ATX to AT adaptor and it sprung back to life. Motherboard is a Gigabyte GA486IM with 4 PCI slots, 4 ISA slots and 2 VLB slots. Has two identical ISA serial/parallel/game-port cards with one acting as the HDD/FDD controller. Also has a Realtek NIC with both RJ45 and BNC. GPU is a Cirrus Logic card and is astoundingly shit.
