Topic, thanks.

two blower style coolers would be better for sli configurations as the bottom card wont be spitting hot air onto the top card.

But if you must get one of these cards, i would grab the MSI ones.

I have a phantom 830, with a 200mm side fan, I can just flip it and use as an exhaust so the air shouldn't be much of an issue. I don't believe so anyway, never had a SLI/CF configuration in this system. Motherboard is a Maximus Formula V, so the gap would be 3 card slots wide. Also would have a 140mm fan mounted at the end of the case to blow the air away from the cards. Not sure how this setup would work, but I also considered the reference blower models as well.

Either are going to be pretty good cards, just make sure that you have sufficient airflow in your case to support the style of coolers. Most people recommend blower style coolers for SLI, however if you have plenty of airflow it's not really a concern. I'm running two 7950's overclock with Windforce x3 coolers and they run extremely cool because I have quite a bit of air flowing through my case.

I don't know if I can recommend using the side panel fan. Honestly with my phantom when I installed the side 200mm fan I actually saw temps go up because if anything it disrupted airflow in the case. Since I've modded my panel getting rid of the mesh and putting in a window I've seen temps actually drop because the airflow is naturally flowing from the front up to the top and back. I'm running the 1x140 in the front plus the 2x120's on the side with 2x200mm 166CFM exhausting from the top. I get extremely good airflow from this setup and I'd recommend putting that 200mm up top if you don't have a second one up there exhausting air.

I have a 200mm in the front, a 140mm in the middle of the case. 2 140mm at the bottom, 200mm side, 140mm rear, option to mount 2 200mm fans, but I currently have 140s located there. I think I have plenty of airflow, but I'll look into your suggestion.
