To end this Up, I wouldn't get green drives since 7200 RPM drives are much better performers and in the same cost. I don't give a damn for the slight difference in power consumption, temperature are within 30s in most cases.

power costs difference is negligible if you're only powered up when active.  It can be significant however in a 24x7 arrangement - 40 watts equal $5/month.

The heat difference shows up in the form of noise as fans have to work harder, and that's the one I care about.
