I seem to recall a story about a fellow (previously a member of this
list) who ran a -pair- of ST15150N drives in an SS10 that had also had a
pair of SM512 double-wide mbus modules -and- two VSIMMs.  If I remember
correctly, the top of the case melted, and the system was shortly
rendered inoperable.

I used to have an external SCSI tower full of ST15150N drives (attached
to my SPARCstation LX "server" in college).  It did wonders for keeping
my feet warm in winter.
