As a person who always uses three, I don't get this. However, people thought I was nuts putting my 3007 WFP-HC in storage so I could game on a 22" TN panel in 3d or at 120Hz, so I have to respect your position or be a hypocrite.
None of them have/had dual fans that i bought.

Dual fan XFX version sold out before I could even get one, and I don't want another turbine fan design, got sick of those.

The top two cards are going to burn in any other case.

You really need a couple more monitors also Roadie. Your rig is going to be like a Toyota Prious with a Dodge Hemi engine in it. Totally unbalanced.
Yeah you wouldnt want them to start on fire, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sRo-1VFMcbc, because I heard AMD cards do that...
