I have one of those "high-speed" cdroms that spin down every 2 seconds. I've also heard of a proggie caled spindown that allows you to set the spin down time. Is there a risk of overhating or something?

No, but if you are worried about it, go to www.3dfxcool.com and find a drive fan.  This should not be a problem at all though.  Besides, a CD-ROM costs about $40US
