I have no affiliation with them nor do I even have any - but they do look 
nice.  They claim to not block blade swaps or fan tray removal.

If you notice about half the pics/links posted - folks have ALL cabling 
leaving the 6500 to one side.  If you don't do this, you must disconnect 
cables to get the fan tray out.  The folks fanning to both sides are 
either ignorant or overly optimistic (no pun intended WRT your email 
address) :)
