The columns of power

Closing out the week with a tricky picture puzzle. I’ll give a big hint and say this is a computer component, because I feel like leaving it wide open makes it too difficult. It is something that most people will be familiar with, although they may not have run across this particular example. There may also be a very vague hint in that title. Got it? The wide shot is below.

It’s the heatsink of a CPU. Specifically, this is a HP AD110A. That is a 1.068GHz Dual Core PA8900 processor for the RP7440 and RP8440. Those are interesting servers because they use cell boards that each contain four of those CPUs and you can partition them physically, or virtually.

Alright, have a great weekend!
