The resulting power save from adding a new sata disk, moving the data and removing the old pata disks is not spectacular (yet): the 5 pata disks (all with activated automatic spindown) had the UPS at a 40% load, the current 2 sata and 2 pata disks (also with automatic spindown) have the UPS at a 42% load. It'll be interesting to see what happens when the 2 pata disks can be removed. The main original idea was to save a bit of power and make the system less complicated, let's see if that first part works out in the end.
Update: Found the cause of the not so great power saving: probably the recent bios update.
