These are the the sort of pizza box type things, right? ISTR that you're
not supposed to run 7200RPM drives in these due to heat problems. I know I
wouldn't want to run one in there very long.

IIRC, I finally got mine to work on a VAXstation 4000 a while back, but
haven't had time to do anything more with it. Personally I prefer a BA350
or BA356 shelf.
