A8n32 SLI USERS! COOLING QUESTION

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have 2 7600gts and i want to get a vf900 cooler for each one. Is there enough clearance between the cards to do that? Is there enough space to use a pci exhaust fan in there too?

I had two 7900's with vf900's along with my X-FI soundcard. It was a snug fit but nothing hit together. So yes you have enough room for something like a soundcard in between. As far as a pci exhaust fan, i guess it depends on the size of the pci exhaust fan you want to stick in between.

You can use a fan in the bottom of the case rigth in front of the card's if you have room.That's the way I have mine 2 7950GT with the vf 900 and a fan in front of the card's.
