    Basic enclosures are NOT designed for continuous duty unless they have a cooling fan. Since you purchased NAS type drives, I assume you are asking about a NAS. These are decent however do understand that the more expensive NAS have faster processors and more memory to speed up data flow.

    If you just want a simple enclosure and not a NAS, then something like this will do the job;

    Thanks for the information, crjdriver.

    I won't have a NAS, just the computer whose specs I posted here.
