It sure does, I just like simplicity most of the time - helps my brain. I love your sig though - "voiding your warranty is our business" lol. Good stuff.

They shouldn't. Post a picture of the inside of your case so we can see.

The 1st thing I usually do involves Voiding my Warranty

hmm, now that im looking at the picture it looks like those little wire are going to be the problem when i go to over clock. there isnt much slack in those wires. but still, do you think a couple of standard 25mm fans would fit and still have room for crossfire?

You really should get a new case.

You'd get so much more space.

it looks like you should be able to fit a fan at the bottom with another gfx card. if you wanna stay safe though, you could get one of these slim fans.
Scythe "SLIP STREAM SLIM" 120 x 12mm Fan - High Speed Products Model: SY1212SL12H [SY1212SL12H] : Performance-PCs.com, ... sleeve it and they will come
also available in medium, low, and ultra low speeds.

what does look like it might be a problem is your hdd. can't really tell from the angle of the pic, but it looks like your hdd might get in the way of the second card, so you might have to move it to one of the upper bays.

Like I said, use casters. Then you will have enough clearance to mount them on the bottom of the case and take up any room inside the case at all.

See? It's simple.
