This is what it looked like from the previous owner. Was much filthier than it looks.

Cleaned up nicely

The rear grille is removable, thankfully. It had a ton of gray gunk and dust

The inside is quite clean as well! So many PCI slots and 2 ISA slots are a nice touch

dual hard drives

System Commander 7 is an awesome utility. This is how I am able to boot between MS-DOS 6.22 on one hard drive and Windows 95 on another.
