I ended up modding mine for now. The motherboard I got doesn't offer much spacing between 2 cards (can't put one in the third slot as there's the PSU gets in the way). There's a fan that sits right behind both cards, but from behind the cards there's no access to the fan, so no air gets in, so I got a soldering iron and melted a hole in the back of them so air can be drawn in from the back.

Will get some photos of it all tomrorow as I wanna get all the cables sorted as it's one big mess behind there at the moment, lol.

Alright took quite a few photos of it all.

Rewired it all, so I could get all the wiring tidier behind the back, so it wasn't just a colossal mess behind there. Still using the CPU cooler I had with my 9550, just bought a 1366 bracket for it. It's not that great of a cooler for i7s, but didn't wanna spend 60-70 on a decent one, when I'm gonna save up for watercooling over the next few months.

You can see here when I cut a hole in the top graphic card in the case to help with airflow. The motherboard is quite restrictive with GPU spacing, and the photo on the left you can see there's no way for the air to travel through from the fan that sits behind them, so used a soldering iron to melt a hole in and cut one out. Dropped temps quite a bit as I was hitting some high temps while playing Crysis 2. I also use the bottom card as the main card for SLI, which helps keep temps down as well.

Sooo.... last Friday, I helped my friend with one of his bills in town and he wanted to check for a flash card reader and we made a round of the shops downtown. So in the last one, I decided to inform myself of a CPU fan (yes, I didn't do it yet... still running on stock). So, today, the guy at the shop called me back and suggest me the Thermaltake TT-CL-P0533. Took a quick look around to find out it's a cheap cooler. Well, the shop did sell it the same price as newegg : 29.99$. I've seen that many people weren't happy with it, so I gave another call to the guy and chose a better one with lost more appreciation. This one :
Newegg.ca - Thermaltake SpinQ Performance Series cooler with ultra-lightweight aluminum and six heatpipes CL-P0466 CPU Cooler

I'll be going with this one after all. Gotta grab my (huge) PC and bring it to the shop and get it fix'd for an additional 10$. Gotta post picture once it's installed and running. I'll be sure to compare before and after

Nice job. Too bad you had to mod your vid card like that for cooling. Anyway system looks good.

Well, I finally followed what everybody on here has been telling me to do, and I went out today and bought some case fans!









Sorry for the crappy phone shots, I didn't have another camera on me at the time of taking these..

Looks like a nice cooler, let us know what the temp improvements.
