Is my Powercolor Radeon HD 6850 too close???

I'm building my first rig.

I have a microATX mobo and my double slot video card is right next to my sound card so that the fan is buried behind the sound card.
I have the Azza Helios 910 case with 4 fans. A big 230mm fan is on the side facing the two cards and 140mm fans in front and top and 120mm in the rear.

Should I buy an ATX mobo so that there's more space between the two cards, or should I wing it as is? I don't overclock.

I don't want to fry my video card.

Thanks for your help. :sweat:

  1. The card's designed so the fan brings in air and blows it out of the back of the case.
    Shouldn't be any problem unless absolutely no air is getting to the fan whatsoever.
