Hello, I'm currently using a computer using a retail HP case. There is currently only room for one Hard disk drive however HP says you can install a second hard drive on the bottom of the case where they have screws so you can attach it. However I have installed a newer graphics card that generates much more heat and I was just wondering if you guys think it's a good idea to install a Hard Disk Drive on the bottom of the case. I'm currently still searching for a new case. I'm a little anal about how it looks on the outside. So I was wondering if I should either wait for my new case or just stick it on the bottom?

You will be fine with the drive there. Heat rises plus the metal in the case will conduct heat from the drive also.
