I know the OC you can run single gpu in either slot, can't remember if I've tried it on the ud3r or ud7.
Oh hey, you're right. My bad, I was looking at the attached image labeling the various components and it indicates that they're all 16x

Yeah I know, I mean here wherein more than one PCI slot is 16x but the manufacturer still recommends a specific slot (PCIEX16_1 in this case, which I assume is the topmost one) for a single card.

The reason I don't want it up there flat to the soundcard is partly because the soundcard will block off the GPU's fan (which as of now blows into the path of an outgoing lateral fan I installed in the case's door) and primarily because the sound card can and will detect audio anomalies from being so close to another component. Mind you my Xonar is shielded, but this isn't complete protection from the problem.

Well, it's been over a week now. I left tickets with ASUS support, I made topics on the ASUS troubleshoot forums.

I think it's safe to say that ASUS has no interest in helping me with this.

Design: The GPU fan on the 470 is an intake not and exhaust. It sucks air into the 470, which blows out the back. Second point: PCI-e x1 cards will fit and run in any type of PCI-e slot, x1, x4, x8 or x16. So with the right board you have a lot of choice where to put your sound card.

Yeah, I have since found this out. That said, I'd still like to avoid impairing it.

I didn't know this about PCI-e x1 though. It'll work in any slot? That's awesome. I can shelve my worries about slot placement if this is the case.

I have one more person to consult before the RMA. After that I guess I have no choice, which is a shame because I get the impression that this would be fixable if ASUS gave a **** to answer my tickets.
