I recently got a SunFire V210 which should be fairly similar to yours.
It's working fine.  (I've got a single CPU only though.)

I tried to make it less noisy, with moderate success.  The trickiest
part was to have the power supply accept a lower speed fan, because
the PS evaluates the fan speed internally by itself with some analog

Unfortunately, as cool as the idea of the ALOM appears at first, with
a standby power of ~ 15 W, you'd better power it off with a hardware
switch while you don't need it.

Never trust an operating system you don't have sources for. ;-)
