Default Hard Drive question

i currently have 3 ATA hard drives in my computer, i putted each one on a slotted drive bay, theres only small gaps between them
but anyways, heres the question, is it safe to have the three hard drives running on the place they're at?
i only have a side and back fan, and they both blow inwards, the only vent i have is the power supply one.
thanks in advance

yh it will be ok, as long as there is good airflow inside the case they shouldnt get to hot or anything, if you are still worried then it may be a good idea just to monitor the temps of all 3 hhd

That's OK to have the drives mounted that way. I would suggest turning the back fan around so that it blows out. That way you'll have a positive airflow through the case providing better cooling.
