Thintune WGLX01

History

This is identified as an eSeSIX-WLGX01 on the bottom along with a web address of www.eSeSIX.com. The front face carries the model range(?) of Thintune along with a web address of www.thintune.com. Both these addresses are no longer current. In 2005 eSeSIX was acquired by Neoware, which itself was acquired by HP in 2007. The circuit board inside is similar in style to the Neoware Eon.

Specifications

There is close to zero information available on the web about this model.

The WLGX01 has a 32Mb Compact Flash adapter, 64Mb of RAM and runs a version of Linux.

Power Supply

The eSeSIX-WLGX01 has an integral mains supply and the connector is a standard IEC "kettle" style connector. Internally there is a spare 4-pin power connector - which is handy if you want to connect a CDROM or disk drive to the IDE connector.

Expansion

Both the Flash memory and the RAM in the WGLX01 are easily replaceable.

Flash: The flash is a Compact Flash card that interfaces via a 40-pin IDE connector (lower middle in photo). There is an empty socket next to the BIOS chip (upper right in photo) that may (or may not!) take a DiskOnChip.

RAM: The board has a single 168-pin DIMM socket for RAM (PC100 or PC133). The circuit board is TCM-200A Rev3.1. I've tried PC133 128MB and 256MB DIMMs without any problems. The 512MB DIMs are reported as being only 128MB so 256MB would appear to be the maximum amount of memory supported by this revision of the circuit board.

A small riser card is plugged into the edge of the board. This carries an old style ISA connector and a PCI connector.

Overclocking

DIP switch Kevin Bosworth has a couple of these and I recently received an email from him:

Playing with my EseSix (WLGX01) thin clients this weekend, I discovered that one was only clocking at 166MHz instead of 266. I noticed the 5-way DIP switch on the M/B had switch 5 half-way due to the big cable running across the top of it knocking the setting....After 32 switch twiddles and reboots I attach the results.

It confirmed the knocked switch settings would have created speeds of 166 and 266 BUT, more interestingly, it offered the possibility of using 333MHz (NB There are a few results where it failed to boot up at all - probably an overclock too far).

So I set it to 333MHz and stress benchmarked it for a couple of hours and it is stable and cool - (Note - I have PC133 DDR fitted).

Thanks for that Kevin! My own unit would run at 300MHz, but not reliably at 333MHz. Kevin's results are below:
