Here's a shot with it almost done. Got all my fans switched out. I bought the CM sickle flow fans. I have 4 of those and then to clear blue LED CM 140 fans on top exhaust. I need to figure out something better to hide all my wiring at the bottom of the case.

Looks nice.
What case fans are you using and where are they placed?
Is there a vent in bottom of case to supply air to PSU? If it does not I suggest either cutting a vent and raising case 30mm off of desk or turning your PSU over so it can draw air easier.
2x 6870's are lots of heat. I think they are rated 150w TDP each. So each is making as much or more heat than CPU is 125w TDP.

I'm using 4 120 CM sickle flow fans (2 in the front for intake, one in the rear for exhaust and one on the side) then 2 140 CM fans on top for exhaust also. The bottom of the case does have a vent cut into it also.

I would get a Silverstone Heligon HE01 from newegg for 59.99 usd AR

That is a big case with plenty of room. It looks like the cpu is mounted high on that motherboard so a really wide cooler might get too close to the top fans, but other than that and ram clearance he could run anything.

The HE01 is down to $60?

Heckuva deal. I have gone as high as 5ghz with mine and while idling like now I can not hear the HE01 fans but can hear the case fans. Under load the fans make noise, but the video card fans are louder yet.

There would be no clearance problems with it at all in that case.
