good good :)

also see you added a 120 or 140 mm fan. can you take more angled shots? cant see too much from the above. you may need another one in the front of the cards to blow in, the one you have visible there to blow out.

when possible i add one in front, one on top(both blow in) and a third one liek you did to blow up.

The two up top are drawing air out, and there's another 120mm at the rear of the cards blowing fresh air in.

Yep, only second to duct tape.

I'm a fan grill groupy, but the last batch of grills I orderd didn't come with mounting screws so I'm running a bit short.... :)

hmmm....if you have everything set up properly, the grills will just add to the airflow restriction/noise.

sswilson:
Is it the picture or are the graphics cards leaning?
I wouldn't want the pci-e slots damaged on your board.

Possible Solution: mount a thick piece of metal bar across the top of the 4 expansion slot brackets - the cards would be forced to the upright position.

BTW, I like your solution for the legs

A proper grill won't impede airflow to a significant degree, and has the advantage of preventing the fan from either breaking or chopping your finger off if you happen to accidentally put one near it.
