Owners of Asus P67 WS

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am considering stepping up to this motherboard because I like it's cooling and slot layout for dual triple slot cards better than my deluxe. What I am wondering though is with the top PCIe x16 so close to the northbridge heatsink will it clear the backplate on my Asus DirectCUII 570? It's difficult to tell from pictures, especially ones without a card installed backplate or not, so I would really appreciate and owners insight into the matter. Something that might also help would be a top down picture of the board with a GPU installed in the top slot to get an idea of clearance between it and the northbridge heatsink.

Please keep posts related to helping me determine clearance rather than telling me I don't need the WS.

In case anybody stumbles upon this thread with the same question as me, I found my answer. It will actually fit with the backplate without touching the motherboard heatsink over the NF200, as is shown at about 55 seconds into this video I found. Hooray! I really wanted to be able to get this motherboard and use the backplate so great success!
