If you have your cards back to back, do you have a problem with heat? I will have a SLI rig pretty soon, and I don't want to have to change cases just because my cards cant have some space to breathe....

I wouldn't recommend running them back to back if you can avoid it (I assume you mean in slots 1 and 2 or 2 and 3 instead of 1 and 3??). Even with mine in 1 and 3 with as much air flow as I can, the card that has the intake facing inwards runs 8-10*C hotter, although it's never caused any real problems exept one fan runs faster when gaming. You can reduce this with a very basic mod...
