No, I have not done this specifically, but I have installed similar
heat dissipation drives in an SS1+ and SS2 without problems.

I have one, gets a little warm on occasion, but generally stays
fairly cool and very reliable.

I have a Fujitsu 1GB drive in a Sparc 1, it runs a bit hotter,
but not too much. I tried the Fujitsu and the original Quantum 105,
this proved to be too hot in my opinion. The temperature climbed
steadily to 40C between the two disks, before I chickened out and
disconnected the Quantum. The Fujitsu alone is stable around 32C.
It draws 11 watts, so compare that to your Toshiba.

We've got one in an SS1 in a relatively hot environment - no problems.
Thanks for all the answers.
