But in the pc I'm looking in its encased in a black box the size of a 3.5 caddy.  Perhaps it's a cooling box of sorts inside a very fancy pc.

It's just a 3.5" Sata Drive.  You can also go to start > msinfo32 > Under components check to see if that's the only HDD listed.  It sounds like he has an enclosure and may even have some kind of HDD cooler or heatsink.

It's a Seagate Barracuda 7200rpm SATA-II (3.0Gb/s) 3.5'' 320GB drive.
Here's the Product Manual for it
