I have been using a 4-way SLI with 970's using 16 cores (hyperthreaded and overclocked) cooled with a cheap Mastercraft utility fan (settings 0-3) in 85-90 degree heat. The side panel of the Corsair case is removed and the air is funneled appropriately. If the fan dies then your rig will blow up, that's the only downside.
Keep an eye on condensation and power drawn (How much are your calculations worth to you?) There have been been some excellent discussions in this forum on cooling.. Peltier plates, etc...
