do you know a good programm for monitoring heat. i know core-temps isnt too bad

I use HWInfo for that and other purposes. It is free and can display a lot of things.

no, that should be fine. you can always just monitor your hdd temps and change it in the future if you want.

They're just stacked onto eachother? No space between? I wouldn't do it like that but it should be fine unless heat and vibration will cause a problem. As @bmx6454suggested you can monitor temps. I'm more worried about vibration in the long run though.

there not touching, the HDD cage is desingn to hold 2 HHD without touching, but they are very close anyway to eachother.  Just wanted to make sure for any heat problem

In that case it should be fine. Just monitor for temps or just put in a fan to blow over them if possible.

If temps are ok, then don't worry. If you think they are a bit high, put a fan at the end blowing over them, wouldn't take much to help with temps that way...

Even so, if the temperatures are within spec, then I don't think it's a big deal.
