As long as your hard drives aren't just lying there and are on proper mounts then they should be just fine.

Reason why...
Its easier for air to cool them if heat rise's...
I would only have 3 HDD in this fashion; IDE and 2 RAID.
I want to have a hole on the bottom of the case with a fan pulling air in(120mm), 2(80mm) about 6in above it(right under the HDD's, pushing air againist them).
And if your wondering about what kind of case this is, its wooden, so I need to everything before its made.

FYI, I mean mount them Virticaly, unlike the horizontal standard.
Lian-Li makes some cases where the HDD's mount sideways.
