My System Specs

Ended up going core i7 to get space in between the cards where I'll have a fan blowing air between them. I'll be assembling this rig shortly and would appreciate the heads up.
My case has a 140 mm fan blowing cool air into the cards intake fans, it seems to do the job, then again the 5970's are hotter running cards. my GPU's idle at 37C at under load never get above 78C
