I have the Evga x58 Classified with two GTX295. I am a little concerned with them so close together. As i am only using air cooling. I would have like to use the second on the 5th PCIe lane on the board, but the Graphics card would completely block the sockets for connecting power button and reset. Just would like to know If anyone has the same board with these cards and how did you set them up.
As you can see just in the last picture. Where i have circled. The GPU blocks the connector.

It should not block the connectors, I have the same setup and use slots 1/3.

I have three GTX 280 packed close together and as long as I keep my fan at 60% ,it works fine.
