Do I need more case fans?

I am getting the Cooler Master Storm Enforcer, and someone told me that I need to get another case fan because my HDD needs to cool down because I will be recording, is this true?

  1. I used a green WD, which is only meant for a backup drive, as a screen capture drive. It ran for months without an issue, even though it's not meant to run constantly. It'd have to be really hot in your room to cook a HDD. As long as there's at least some air flow, you're good.

    The front fan will cool the HDD. The case is fine. If you add another fan, which is not really needed, make it a top exhaust.

    It should be noted it is VERY hard to overheat a HDD. It will be perfectly fine.
