SLIing my GTX 780, a few question, does the distance between the card matter?

Hello, I won two Asus DCII GTX 780 in a contest, and is currentlying using one, as I've been interested in SLI for a while, I'm wondering, on my current rig with this mobo

http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/M4N98TD_EVO/

The card is really close together, will that burn them up or is it ok, because there's only about...front of pinky length between the two card.

Here's my setting with only using one card, is it good or not, as I can't find alot of to compare to.
My setting
Voltage +37
Power Limit +110
Core Clock +180(Valley crash at the final let on 185)
Memory Clock +360(Think I can push it higher, but too tired)

I'm sur eif you have a good airflow in your case, it would keep temps in check. But first, what CPU are you using? I doubt it would be able to power two 780's in SLI. Could you fill in your specs in your sig to help you better

You want as much of a gap between your cards as possible. It won't burn them up but it will limit your overclocking ability

AMD Phenom 965 3.4 ghz stock(Got a terrible one, can't even OC it that well)
Cooler Master Evo 212 Cooler
8G of ram

I'll be building a new rig by the end of the year, so I'll be upgrading Maximus Hero V and Intel i5 4670k and 16G of ram.

If you could get the proc upto 4.2Ghz, it would manage to handle 780's in SLI, but then, if you are running only a single 1080p screen, then a single 780 would do it for you. Keep the second 780 or sell it now, and buy a new one later once the price drops.
