Those are stacked connectors. Probably won't fit. At least not without some "modding".

Twin Turbo 2 will fit, but not with that SLI setup. The they are 3 Slot coolers.

What you could do is fit a Hybrid on the Top Card and Twin Turbo 2 on the Bottom Card.

Hybrid might not fit too. It takes up more than 2 slots.

It won't fit if your card has stacked connectors, like shown above.

Accelero Twin Turbo II, mentioned above, Accelero Hybrid. Some smaller coolers that don't cover power sockets would fit.

The Hybrid cooler is effectively silent and will keep your temps around 50c. They're frequently on sale for $99.99. At that price they are an awesome deal.
