[rescue] Picked up my E4500 today

'Fun' drive - Austin<->Houston<->Austin in 6 hours. The gas bill sure beats
the ~$250 shipping option, though! :-)
The E4500 can hold 8 modules total, including the one required I/O board, and
this one came with 7 CPU boards, 1 I/O board, and 1 disk board (not
installed). The seller indicated that there had been heat problems with the
disk module, and suggested I not use it (in favor of external storage).
But I noticed the drives are both 10,000 RPM, and I'm wondering whether I
would see a noticeable reduction in heat from 7200 RPM drives (I have some
here, getting them isn't a problem). Any opinions?
