With six case fans I wouldn't be to worried. As long as you keep the insides cleaned and nice with the cable clutter at least somewhat under control, and make sure you've got some space abound the case for airflow you should be fine.
I've seen alot of reviews saying that the fanless design doesn't keep the board all too cool. Is this true, or do these people just not know what they're doing? So how reliable is this fanless cooling design?

I've been led to believe that putting anything in the pci slot right next to a video card is less than a good idea, heat wise. Doubley so when running in SLI. Have I been mis-informed?
What do you mean you are only left with one PCI slot? The ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI X16 ATX AMD has two video card and three PCI slots.
I'm looking at getting 2 ASUS Video cards, so what would you recommend as a solution? Can I buy better replacement fans for the video cards? If not (or if not recommended without an engineering degree), what are my options here?
Something to remember! If you get the top of the line PCI-E video cards they will have to be cooled as well and they come with shoddy fans. Don't think for a second those puny fans are going cool your video cards.
ASUS and ATI have admitted to attaching less then effective fans to their video cards. Their reply is that you should have a case with plenty of cooling.
