Be careful, the heatsinks on some of those fanless cards can block the 
adjacent slot.

I know one fellow who was concerned his heatsink was getting too hot, so he 
installed a slot cooler next to it, but he had to skip the blocked slot, 
making the whole thing take up a total of 3 slots.

Certainly not optimal, at least IMHO.

But depending on your motherboard layout and card requirements, it might work
