And I always use a small pc fan mounted to vacuum air from the spindle underneath the disk it takes away about 15oC of operation heat build up in summer. Keeps older disks running longer.
I am still one owner of a maxtor diamondmax 8 from 2004 because of my method. It still runs in RAID with 3 others that arrived later.
I have installed one 60mm noctual exhaust fan at the back of my case, but unfortunately that will be the only fan I use (apart from the socket 1 cpu fan) due to the case having no other cut outs. I doubt it'll get very hot in there with only a TNT2 Vanta running.
This is the case I'm using btw, same as in this video:
