It actually would be really hard. I suppose it would be possible, but if I found out it was the PSU what would be the solution?

There is a strong intake on the top, which is directly below the 2nd video card. BUT, the video card's fan is trying to pull air into itself... So, there's obviously a conflict.

Maybe some kind of heat shield, or ducting would help. The ducting can be easily mocked up using thin card and tape. Judging by the images of your case on new egg, there is a vent on the side that looks like it could be ducted towards either the PSU or GPU/s. This would give you the advantage of cooling being effected by the colder air from outside the case.
