Have you added any case fans? A couple of 140mm fans up front would probably do the trick without any special drive cooling.

I'm gonna look at my case to see if a case fan will work

By the looks of your case you can add front case fans and position one of them at the very bottom and it will blow right on your HDDs. A bit of airflow is all a HDD needs to prevent them from overheating.
