IF you have to have that in your design....stick ANOTHER fan on the other side of the cage to help suck the air through and past it.
Depends how it's implemented. The ATCS 840 for example has large gaps between HDs and big holes in the cage so there's a pretty decent amount of space for air to pass through. There is also a bracket for mounting a pair of 120mm fans on the inside of the drive cage, like you want.
