How much component temps will be effected by HDDs depends on how hot they run and how well the case fans in case are moving air through them .. as well as what other intake fans are supplying cool air to components. Link ciarlatano supplied has many posts about airflow and cooling. 5th post is good place to star. 11th post might help understand how fan specs work and how to choose fans that can maintain good airflow through grill, filter and past things like HDDs.
