Need advice about hard drive coolers.

Ok, so I've got an Intel XM 25 80 GB SSD drive and I'm going to get a WD Caviar Black 1 TB 7200 RPM drive as well in the same case (CoolerMaster HAF 932). I'm wondering if I will need HD cooling at all, and if so, I'd only want coolers that will fit into the 3.5" drive bays that the hard drives will be occupying. I'm not concerned about the coolers taking up an extra bay, but I only want coolers that would fit in the 3.5" drive. Any suggestions?

I was thinking about this: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1683...

Hard drives do not, as a rule, need any extra cooling. Certainly not the SSD. If your case or wiring is abysmally poor, then maybe. Install speedfan or some other monitoring software to check the temparatures.
