I am looking at using a X99 WS-E to make a new build and I'm worried about the clearance between the graphics card and the x-fan chipset cooler. I'm planning on installing two GTX 980s from EVGA with reference coolers in SLI (Part#: 04G-P4-2982-KR)

Will they fit over the X-fan cooler and the back of the PCIE port?

Thanks for any help

There shouldn't be any clearance issues with the chipset cooler. After looking at a ton of reviews on the WS-E I saw no mention of clearance issues or problems with SLI/Crossfire configurations. In fact it received very positive reviews and looks to be a particularly solid board. 

Stupid reviews, now I want one Tongue

Thanks. Everything I've found supports that I just wanted to be sure. And I know how you feel once I found this board I found it hard to look at any others.

Glad to be of help, post back here if you go through with the build I would love to hear how it performs Wink
