I dont see an issue breath there at all. I ran my pair of GTX 780's like that just fine with minimal temp difference. I was told the same thing swapped out the mobo and case, and saw no real gain maybe one or two C. I think this is a none issue, and only problem I see is that freakin psu needs sleeving lol... wtf such a clean build than that haha.

Like you said, they are water-cooled. The fan will be fine to keep a bit of circulation, it doesn't appear to be a primary cooling device from the tear-down photos that were posted.

The fan in the middle has nothing to do with the GPUs so there is no problem with overheating. The GPUs are cooled by the watercooling system and the air is taken from the fan outside mounted in the radiator, the fan in the middle is to cool the VRM and ram and for that is enough room. So i think there is no problem. Anyway the only problem i see here is maybe because of crossfire and AMD drivers problem..."Stuttering Here I Come" :p
