I intend to do a SLI of 2 Gigabyte 670 cards for my new gaming computer to maximize my 120 hz montior, here is my current set-up:

Mobo: ASRock Extreme 4, The Cards will be placed in 1/3 PCIE slots(these are the PCIE3.0 slots)
Z77-Express-Ivy-Bridge-Value,H-E-345362-13.jpg
Case: Corsair 500R:
Fans: 2 X120 mm intake, 1X 120mm exhaust, 1X 200mm side panel fan.

I have read a lot about how Custom Cooler GPUs are bad at SLI because the top card's exhaust heats the the bottom card. But I also heard the Gigabyte model exhaust most of its hot air to the side. I intend to mount the 200 mm side fan as Exhaust to pull these exhaust out of the Case.

Is this set-up good enough? Or Do I have to add fans for it to work(On newegg they now offer a free Corsair AF120 when you buy a 500R for 114.99)?

Woudl really appreciate imput from 400R/500R SLI/CLXers, especially those that use Custom Cooler GPUs.

if you want optimal cooling then obviously you need to optimize the fan locations.
I know people have tried to exhaust the 200mm fan but i belive they have higher temps then having it as a intake. My suggestion is to have intakes in the front, side, bottom, and back, the top as exhaust. this will create positive pressure and help the heat exhaust out the pci slots. If fans will fit on the hdd cages with your video cards then i recommend installing good fans there to help push air towards the pci slots as well.

Not sure if this is the right place to post this or not. I've just got a 500R and I'm thinking about getting a H100 in there.

Is there a notable difference in getting a H100 ($150) over getting something like a CM Hyper 212 ($40) if I intend to overclock in the future sometime? Is it actually worth the extra ~$110?
