Using GC Extreme compound, my friend knocked off 8C from his GTX 570

I think I changed my mind, I want a Shaman now. But, I'm hearing conflicting reports on exactly how many expansion slots it needs.



From looking at the picture, my pcie 1x slot is being used by a Xonar DX. Keep in mind that the Xonar DX is has a small footprint:




Now, would a Shaman actually fit in my setup? If so, do you think the Xonar is small enough to encourage proper airflow?

...If not, what other coolers can you guys recommend? I really want the AXP but import shipping + buying two things is just too much.

p.s Are there any other retailers that carry the high flow bracket? I don't want to pay $10+$5 for a bracket from evga.
