Thermal throttling, you want to pay attention to. These are not drives you leave bare on an adapter board with no dedicated cooling fan. You need heatsinks or dedicated fans or both if they are working hard. (and a reminder that many of the drives we use don't work too hard all the time... only occasionally).
Thanks much for the info - you've given me something to research.
