> Well if you mean a lot of disk then you mean a lot of heat, and with that comes good cooling and with that comes fans and most of them when running at full speed will give you some noise.
i have 8 SATA drives in one case, nothing special, and just one small fan 
added for upper drives.

all runs cool.

disks take no more than 15W each, usually less.

compare this to CPUs taking 50-100W
