I mean I know that case airflow with the goal of not affecting other component temps is kinda your bag but I think you're missing the big picture to focus on that.

Second and most importantly he most certainly will not be quite safe as long as he keeps it below 1.1v. In this thread there are plenty of people that have kill cards with less than 1.1v with appropriate cooling for the VRMs, even water cooled! So him having zero VRM cooling is most certainly not A-okay.
Actually there is more than that, the angle of the picture makes it look different, there's another PCI-E slot hidden:

Oh okay, my mistake. Obviously I still stand by what I've said about the VRMs and strongly disagree with Windfire saying you will be anything even close to safe without heatsinks. Honestly even with heatsinks you're still not in great shape to go over 1.1v, just look at the thread I posted where the second guy on the list killed his card at 1.1v with a full cover block.

He should be fine as long as he keeps things at stock volts, but get heatsinks just in case

Exactly what I thought.
And it is not just the fairly wide 'gap' but also the size of the fan and Shaman will 'overshadow' the card underneath, making a good portion not having any direct obstruction at all.

I don't plan on overvolting this card, I dropped a total of $420 on it for the card and the cooler, so I'd like to keep it for a while before I break it

I'm almost done with my 3dmark scores as well, so I'll edit the compare links in shortly.

Well that's good but even still I would recommend some form of VRM cooling, I prefer copper, and the ones I linked you above should be just about exactly what you need.

What is your stock voltage?

(Mine are 1.05v and 0.95v)

According to HWMonitor, 0.91v and 1.02v - Seems like a good card then?

It honestly does not matter, i'm not an nVidia guy but even i KNOW these cards need VRM cooling

i will be a moderate dick after this advice: Try to look past the trolls and lawlz and flames and actually understand what the majority are talking about.
No VRM cooling, no matter what! will result in degradation/fried card/big GUI mess/lots of pace palms cause you didn't listen. Now...

Anyone want to start a poll as to when this thing cooks?

I'll start the running with, 1 month 2 weeks, so 6 weeks!
(only moderate remember )
