    it will all fit, the 690 II is a good size case and fits cards up to 30cm. the 7970 is 27.5cm long

    define cooling solution? your best bet would be water cooling but that is expensive and a DIY project (or more money to pay someone else to do it)

    your next option would be after market coolers for the vga but that is also expensive and you can put that money back into better cards

    if you are asking about fan placement then two in (front) and two out (back & top) will do the trick. you get diminishing returns after that.

  2. Although the Hyper 212 Evo is a nice cooler, I would go with ..

    or
