All temperatures look relatively fine, although the ideal hard drive temperature is in the 40s so you may wanna cool them down a bit.

My case is too small. I don't have enough space. Those 2 HD's are right on top of eachother. I don't know how to fix this. Maybe I will remove my DVD player to make room for a HD cooler. I don't know.

Even a small 60mm fan bringing some air from the outside or from another fan would help a lot.

Can you mount a fan in front of the two drives? To act as an intake, and also immediately pull air over the hard drives? Do you have you drives in a 5.25 bay?

I don't have room for anything. Maybe I will try to mount a fan with some screws.

If you don't have room man, you can always mod it and mount fans outside the case .. Just need 2 holes, no?
