That's a nicely provisioned system!

You may want to add some external fans on the side of the case opposite to
the PSU to act in a push-pull configuration with the PSU.  The SS10 didn't
have the ventilation of the SS20, and two HyperSPARCs are really pushing
the thermal limits of that chassis.

On the other hand, not having a pair of 1990s-era hard drives in there
gives you back a little more headroom.
