There's ABOUT an inch of space between the fans and the drive. Pardon my
ASCII here:
      /   Fans   \
   /    Heatsink    \
|     Hard Drive       |

No, that's not a wedding cake... :) The heatsink is about the thickness
of a hard drive, and the fans are on top, so there is some room for air
to circulate down there.

I'm sure you can make a better heatsink than that, but for $10 I have no
complaints. :)
