Will this fit on my motherboard?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a Maximus IV Extreme and I would like to upgrade to a third GTX 580 in the future. However, I don't think I'd be able to fit a sound card if I did that, because they are 2 slot graphics cards. Is there any way I could fit both a third GPU and a sound card on this motherboard? I'd like to get an Asus Xonar Essence STX or Asus Xonar Xense.

If your case has an expansion slot below the 4x slot you could use a pci-e ribbon connector thing.

would work..
