Fan placement for SLI setup.

I was curious if anyone could offer any advice, I am moving my computer into a Fractal Define R4 to reduce noise. I'm curious if its possible to leave the top closed and only exhaust out the back of the case, the intakes would be at the front and side. I'm thinking that since both GPU's vent out the back of the case I should have enough air flow, but I'm not sure.

So my question is if anyone has tried a similar setup and if it has worked? Or if anyone has advice on my fan placement I'd love to hear it. Thanks.

if you want to reduce noise then keep your current case get a cheap watercooler like a corsair h60 and get some low noise fans instead of the stock fans

I thought about that but I already have the R4 case, it was from a build that never happened. I had used an R4 on another build and really liked how the computer all came together so I figured I would use the extra one I have for my self.

I figure that with the R4 it should silence the CPU cooler, and since I already have the case and extra fans its cheaper then buying a new CPU cooler.

Ya I have the 2 stock Cooler Master fans. Are there 92mm fans that are quieter you would recommend?
