The temps of the tri-sli are creeping up in all this NY heat, touching mid-80s on the top card, so I'm throwing 4x120mm bGears b-Blaster fans in there. They each move about 100cfm of air. We'll see how they work out before I decide if I'm plunging into watercooling.

I'd be interested to know how the temp goes with the 4 fans?

I recently put the same 3 cards together in the same case.
The fans on the top two cards would catch on the pcb beneath.
What is that you have on the ends where the power connects.
Some sort of spacer?

It's actually ducting for a fan that pulls air in from the front of the case. The cards are long and do sag a bit, but none of them touch.

The temps after adding the 4 b-Blaster fans are SO much better. I never see above 70C full load on the top card now. Usually, it goes like this while playing a game: bottom card = 55C, middle card = 62C, top card = 69C or so.

Wow, those are good temps. Could I get some info on that ducting? Maybe some pictures?
If i could get decent temps on air it'd save me $1000 on a water loop.
It's 32c here (Brisbane) during the day lately and will probably get hotter.
I was looking at 4x Silverstone ap121 fans, running exhaust on the side panel.
Do you think it'll work? Maybe with that ducting?

Got it sorted. Zip tied a 90 cfm fan where the duct should go an put 4 decent fans on the side panel in exhaust.
20-30 degrees cooler now.

Yeah, air movement on that side panel is a joke with the stock fan. Increasing the airflow on the side panel yields SUCH better temps.
