My System Specs

Default

running 4 double wide slot cards is difficult, 3 out of 4 of them will suck hot air from the back plate of the one in front and the platform will be noisy. Had 3 nvidia cards and all of them were running at 60% fan speed, and with default profile from EVGA precision they are noisy. Speaking from my own experience. Even with good lateral cooling the system will be noisy. In order for the 4th card to be double wide you will need an Extended ATX case, something for servers otherwise will not fit as most cases don't have the necessary space if the power supply is bottom mounted. So 3 double wide and a single slot is doable on a regular ATX case but with compromise of noise.
