Hi,

few days ago i received second GPU Asus Strix 980 Ti which is still not in PC.

My CPU is cooled by Corsair H100 Corsair h100i 240mm radiator.
4770 K

Question - Problem

Is there any mATX motherboard which will give me enough space between cards to get a bit fresh air?
Or will good case ventilation help me out?

Was looking for MSI Z97M GAMING or maybe ASUS MAXIMUS VII GENE.

I don't know about case for now, I'm in love with cube design, but Corsair Air 240 will not provide enough air? or?
Looks like even cards will not fit in case...

What about if i choose Corsair Air 540, and normal ATX mobo, what will happend with GPU airflow?
They will still stick together... Is there any chance to run both cards with non-reference coolers in SLI?

Looks like if you use a 540 you would be fine running 2 of the 980ti strix as there is enough clearance in that case for them to fit. As far as the 240 goes you would have to be using reference design cards in order to fit 2 in sli on an matx board. The double dissipation cooler design on the after market coolers is just too large to fit in the 240 unfortunately. Hope this helps!
