    The only issue with having the front fan cooling the hdds is that the air gets warmed before passing into the rest of the case.
    My thought was to have 1 side fan assisting the cooling of the hdd, while not overpowering the flow of air from the front... hopefully allowing cooler air (not warmed so much by the hdds) into the main chassis.
    I imagine the force of the 2 side fans would side swipe most of the airflow coming in from the front fan anyway and the other side of the case (behind the HDDs) is some more ventilation so the air would mostly be forced out from there
