Crossfire Help!

I bought 2 XFX ATI Radeon HD6950 2 GB and im using an Asus Crosshair Formula IV mother board. This will be my first time Crossfireing and when i put the 2 Videocards into the 1st and 2nd slot they are close together, like [----] This close together. Would proper venting be a problem here? Or would this actually be a fine setup?

My case is the HAF 932 Advanced full tower and it allows me to put 4 120mm fans, would this give the 2 video cards a good amount of air? Or should I just buy a longer crossfire bridge and put the cards in the 1st and 3rd slot?

Thank you for your time

  1. doesnt the crosshair 4 have like 4 pci slots(3 usuable for at least 8x crossfire). unless you have really thick* 6950's, i wouldnt think that they would be that close together.

    Yes you're correct. It dose have 4 slots but i can only access 3 of them. The fourth slot is all the way at the bottom and there's no way i could fit a 2 port (I think that's what it's called) in it. The cards are really thick, the fan is almost going to hit my second card.
  3. So, will be videos cards be ok with my putting them in slot 1 and 2?
  4. i would say you wont know until you try,
