Drive burn-in!

Presumably that enclosure is for notebook SATA disks, rather than server
SCSI/SAS drives.  The 2.5" server drives would likely bake themselves in
an enclosure like that unless airflow in the PC is astonishingly good
front-to-back (ever looked at the fan assemblies that tend to live
behind the 2.5" drive cages in servers?).
