580 SLI Heat issue?

Hey guys (and gals), I am transplanting the guts from a Stock BB computer to a new Chassis. I intend on adding a second GTX 580 and have the two in SLI. The case I plan to get is http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146073 with an EVGA mobo with PCIe 2.0x16 (1x16 or 5x8, x1) and an i7 2600k. Was wondering how the best way would be to keep the Monsters cool when they get up to speed. (Might add a third later). Thanks!

    The best option to cooling is water cooling. If you aren't into that, good airflow in a case. Video cards tend to dump hot air out the back of the case. They will still get hot though. An NZXT Phantom already has 4 fans; 2 of which are on the side panel. that should be enough to cool your cards sufficiently. You can add another 200mm fan at the top if you want to.
  2. other wise look at antec DF 85 or DF 35 Case and look at Coolermast HAF cases
