If the MasterPanel is all installed, I can't see a problem of hooking up the HDD while the PC is on. The MasterPanel has an Off/On switch, so if it's powered off and you hook up the drive, there's no power flowing out to it. Once the drive is hooked up, you can push the power on the panel. I do this with my external HDD all the time.
Intel Core i7-3960X, GIGABYTE G1.Assassin 2, Kingston 16GB DDR3-2133, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 2GB
Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SSD (OS, Apps), WD VR 1TB (Games), Corsair 1000HX, Corsair H70 Cooler
Corsair 800D, Dell 2408WFP 24", ASUS Xonar Essence STX, Gentoo (KDE 4.11. 3.12 Kernel)
