I put my new FTW3 into my computer but it is practically touching the side panel.  If I put my side panel on, will heat be able to escape the card?  I have my exhaust fans on the top of my computer.

    Use it, look at your temperatures, and then you will know the answer.  What are your temperatures under load?
     
    It doesn't look like you are even able to put your side panel on, so you probably don't have to worry about it.

    while not preferable , it looks like you have plenty of other space for the heat to move on it's way up & out.

    I have a Lian Li O11D XL and I had to remove the glass.

    These cards produce a ton of heat.

    Try it closed and monitor temps ... my guess is that you’ll be removing panel, vertically mounting or upgrading case size in the future.

    A vertical card mount adapter would solve this

    My first install had about an inch to the glass and it hurt cooling performance ,

    The power cables in the picture are sticking out too far to put the side panel on anyway, so I don't know why we are even discussing these hypotheticals.

    Change your case already. Open case is bad and cables touching the tempered glass can be a cause for it to break and cause serious injury. Vertical mounting is not an option your case is very small. Get a Be Quiet 500 DX very easy case to work with plenty of room and cheap. Good luck.

    That seems a bit odd...  In my XL the only issue was using the vertical mount.  Simply because it puts the fans close to the glass and it ran a bit warm.  Even moving the bracket as much as I could it would idle in the high 50s to low 60s (lol)  So I took the vertical mount out and my bottom fans feed directly into the card... runs as cool as one can expect with air cooling.  At least with my setup.

    It got too hot in there with glass on for me. I mean the air that was being exhausted through the top rad was hot (not warm).

    Also waiting on block.
