SABERTOOTH x79, Gpu covering chipset fan a problem?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok so i just picked up a sabertooth x79, and upon installing my graphics cards i noticed that they almost completely cover the chipset fan, and are actually touching the assembly aswell!? Do you guys think im going to have heat issues?

Is the GPU Internally exhausting? I could see that as being the only real problem..

But otherwise, no I don't think you'll have any issues.

No I don't think you will have issues. That chipset doesn't even /need/ a fan on it.
