Will there be heat issues with this setup?

I decided to put an MSI RX 580 4GB video card into an eVGA Hadron Air Mini-ITX case. Well, the card did not fit... that is, until I filed down one of the sides of the case for it to fit. Seems like everything is working fine(so far). The case has a proprietary 500w PSU(which is the minimum required for this card). My primary concern though is how close the card is to the PSU (ventilation/heat)...

What do you guys think?

Yeah that is a very tight fit and I don't see any realy space for the fans on the bottom of the card to suck in fresh cool air in order to cool it down. You can test it, why not, you already have it in there, but I do think heat will be an issue. Use something like HWInfo or HWMonitor.
