Well guys you are great, I tied the 2 fans at the same height as the 2 HR-03's and I now get temps like 50° average. Thanks again for the great idea and I will try to take some pictures soon

A little late, but here's my HD3870's in CF with HR-03's, fans in front blow air through the fins and out the back. Top card is cooler thanks to the Zalman drawing air off it. 30'ish degrees idle & 50-70 at load. There's even a wifi card in between them! Positioning the fans in front was awkward on my old case, but the new one came with 2 120mm fans pre-installed Similar should work fine with the 2900's
