Hello,
is it possible to take the fan cover off the card because it won't fit otherwise

it is possible. your card may run hotter if the cover is off

will it over heat so much that it will cause major problems with my graphics card?

probably not, what is your exact card?

so you will have the reference cooler which is designed to help move hot air of the case. a side case fan will help (if you can install one) but you should be OK.
