I wasn't aware of photobucket, thanks!
An update: after installing the card and getting it up to oper. temp. and then cool down several times times, I removed it to check for marks on fins of card and heatsink. Found none. After reinstalling card I find I have an ever so sllight cleareance (the card is fully seated). It's close, but I'm not complainaning!
I would say that anyone else considering this MB / GC combo should be prepared to encounter this issue.
