I have a Formula and I've put 2 GTX580s in and they are close but not touching. I believe they are the same height as your 6970s.

someone said on another forum that you used the 1st and 3rd slot is that true

In theory, the third slot is going to be slower than the second. However, with your crossfire setup it should be fine. I personally like the 1st and 3rd slot as it will bring your temps down a bit.

This, But check the manual (never looked at mine lol) to see which ones to use first, also it should not matter because im sure the company MADE SURE they didn't touch when right on top of each other.

In the IV slots 1-3 run at 16x speed for up to two cards.
You can xfire/sli them in any order (1+2, 1+3, 2+3) and the cards will run at 16x/16x if you are only using 2 of them. Slots 2 and 3 only drop to 8x when in triple xfire/sli mode.

For better cooling, use 1 and 3.
