Not without a 9+slot case, no. That cooler once installed makes the card a triple slot card.

Yes and perhaps.

Yes - the Asus Rampage II Extreme has 3 PCIEx16 slots at x16/x8/x8. So, you can install the 2 cards in 1st and 3rd slots. (You cannot do it with the 1st and 2nd slot because they are only separated by 1 slot).

Perhaps - this depends on the chassis used. As the bottom GTX470 is on the final slot of the motherboard, it will extend over the edge of the motherboard due to the dual slot design of the VF3000F. So, if the case has enough space below, then it will be OK. Otherwise, the VF3000F will have conflict with the PSU below, for example.

Edit 1:-
These cases should be suitable.
Cases of choice:- Xigmatek Elysium (US$220 newegg), Rosewill Thor (US$130 newegg), HAF-X (US$188 amazon) in the order of my personal preference.

Yes, you would just have to have one on the top pci-e 16x slot and one on the bottom slot if they both have the cooler and the case has room.
