I've got a rackmount Onyx with R44k processors.  It's marked "test rack", 
an is in a purple rack with no sides, and a hole on the side, over part 
of a CPU board.  As well, it's got a different LCD than the Challenge 
XL's I've got; the LCD matches the one on the smaller, deskside Onyx I 

It was recovered from an SGI dumpster, and probably is a prototype 
machine.  Unfortunately, the graphics part seems to have some problem 
that keeps the machine from coming up when it's attached to the system.

Still, being a prototype/engineering test system does count for something 
even if it's not 100% working. :)
