Actually, it does not have to be external to the system, although many -
especially SCSI RAID arrays - are.  My motherboard has an EIDE RAID array
that is an integral part of the motherboard and its BIOS. Those which are
external have cooling dsigned for hotter drives ( if by exyternal we are
talking about being housed in a case separate from the system case) as you
suggest; otherwise they do not.  However, one can always add larger power
supplies and additional case and drive fans if needed.
