what you gonna do to get a x-fire bridge around that cooler? long flexi bridge?

I like your fan mounts. are they spaced properly for a rad if you wanted?

Close is a way to put it. Buddy at work preferred the term "By the hair of a gnat's a**"

Yupp long flexi bridge up and over the heatpipes.

I didn't measure for a rad but I'm pretty sure one won't fit because the NF-P14 has mounting holes for a 120mm fan but 140mm blades. Also There is no room for a rad anyways.

you might want to stick with one down below since you will have cables coming out of the psu dont want it to hit the fans

There is quite a bit of room between the bottom row of cables and the fans. But I think I'm going to have them be exhaust fans because my gpu cooler is pushing down. I may give switching the fans a try and having everything pushing up. But I'll deal with that when I get all of the fans.

Will 120mm fan guards fit? I know its a tight fit, but because everything is so close it maybe wise to try and keep the fans protected somehow.

well if you use 120mm fans then the space will be smaller so you dont have to move it that close

They are 140mm fans with 120mm mount holes

I was talking about lateral spacing. The area between the fan and the power connector/wires.

the cpu fan and the case fan are tight fit, just wondering if your aware of the inference air flow issue?

That's not a bad idea.It may be worth giving a try.

Fans have already been bought and are one their way to my house.

Yes I know that is is tight fit. mere millimeters of clearance and I intend to remedy it. I may just leave the rear fan out of the case.
___________________________________________________________________________________

Well Air flow got brought to my attention over at the The Noctua Club and I have come up with really only two options:

First have the top be intake and follow the flow of the graphics cards and dump into the intake of my cpu/nb heat sink and exhaust out the bottom.

Pros: Fresh air to the gpus
Con: Heat washing my cpu/nb

OR...

Intake the bottom fresh air of the cpu/nb, flip the fans in the gpus and exhaust out the top.

Pro: Fresh air to the cpu/nb and exhausting hot stuff out the top.
Cons: Questionable effectiveness of the gpu cooling.

You could try something like this. Im thinking that the rear and bottom intakes should be able to keep the heatsink from reusing the hot air from the gpus. Its hard to tell though, in theory it should work but you never know. Just try a couple things and I'm sure you'll find something that works.
