I do that to every desktop I build - I build up most of our company machines 
myself. My video editing workstation has 7 fans in it, and the drives are 
cool to the touch. I have two stacked RAID's and three other desktops in the 
same room, plus two laptops, so I also have a fan on the floor blowing air 
away from behind the mid-towers - hell, I have had our heating and AC guy 
come in and install a return in the ceiling to suck out the hot air lingering 
at ceiling level. This may sound extreme, but I've had a lot of heat 
problems, and solved many by the use of the above methods.
