    Looks like it should work. At $99, though, it might be more economical to buy external drives and connect them via FW800 or eSATA (if you buy a card). I doubt it would cause much in the way of cooling issues, but if you were seriously pushing the machine I guess it could.

    Any thing you add to MP, also mean adding heat...

    I don't think it will be a big problem... but I would look at external eSATA or FireWire

    4x drive eSATA

    4x drive FireWire
