I don't think any hard drive will get hot enough to burn yourself on.

Oh, I beg to differ. Hard drives can get quite hot, and they can also burn themselves out if they get too hot. It's not difficult to cool them, usually a standard case fan is more than sufficient, but it is possible that they can get very hot. On a server especially, when they are running at full throttle for an extended period of time.

I need a rear fan, but my parents don't allow me. I don't know why, maybe it's because it already creates a thunder of noise.
