i agree, the reserator 2 is not ideal for a quad core setup especially at 2.9ghz

because it is passively cooled and with that kind of set up you will probably want an actively cooled set up it will handle the 8800gtx's but after prolonged usage it may start to warm up so use speedfan to check temps occasionally

A Reserator kit is just not going to dissipate the heat that 2 8800GTX's and an overclocked E6600 will produce. In fact I would imagine temps to be higher than the stock air cooler.

As for the CAD setup...the Reserator might work out but still it would not be my first choice.

The reserator was built with silence and looks in mind...not performance. And a setup like yours requires a watercooling setup that will perform!
