Daystar Genesis MP

So I ended up winning the bid on the Daystar Genesis MP on ebay, assuming it was a parts machine. I had planned to steal the quad cpu board and some other odds and ends and resell it for parts, but it appears to be MUCH nicer than the listing shows. It's dirty outside but the paint should clean up very nicely, it actually has the side panel that appeared to be missing in the photos, and it works perfectly aside from the drives! It's also incredibly clean inside, almost looks new! My new plan is to sell my other Mac clones and build this one up to keep, hopefully I can find a 3d model of the front panel, or I'll take measurements off my other Daystar when I pick that up this summer.

I have to say, this thing is significantly bigger than I expected, but should be easy enough to make a new front panel for it once I find a 3d printer that can accomodate such a large print.

Nice find, thanks for sharing! If you ever have it apart, I would be interested in seeing what the quad CPU board looks like.

I still need to find another quad cpu board for my other Daystar too lol. I had the heatsinks off the other day to redo the thermal grease and I completely forgot to take pictures of it
