It's only 1 in the first place, so I believe it makes it 2.

You can, but you'd have to have very good airflow within the case. For some cards, like low ends, it works out pretty well.

My airflow should be pretty good, but i think the turbo module would help out a lot more. I know i shouldn't, but ever since I registered for xtreme forums i've been reading a lot about vmoding -_-...... lol i hope i don't have the balls.

Zipties and a 120mm fan work just as well on the S1

lol... thats wat i was thinking of doing at first... but i think the turbo module will look nicer. And less worrying about it not working too.
