eek... a 15150N in a 411.... you sure that drive is running cool
enough ????

Years ago I had a dozen + of that model drive in operation.  What
I found out was if you keep them cool, they damn near run forever...
but it wasn't easy keeping them cool !

Put quad HS125s in an SS20.  I don't run my SS20 because it runs
hotter than I'd like... (and I don't currently need to run it).
I hope to come up with a better cooling solution for it sometime
(it needs more air).
