Had a flick through the manual a short while after and to my horror I found that lane 2 only runs at x8 doh.gif
To correct it I'd have to reinstall the whole cooling system because my pipes are cut to perfect length. So I haven't bothered yet (a month later). Its not like it makes any noticeable difference in games but it does make a marginal difference in benchies.

The 7970 runs at 3.0 on the PCIE. the 8x lane thus will not bottleneck it. i actually tested this theory with a run through Unigine. I got 41fps in the 3rd slot (16) and 42fps in the second slot (the 8x one)
since the 7970 cannot saturate a 3.0 16x lane any more than it does a 2.0 16x lane i figured it shouldnt even bottleneck on a 3.0 8x lane, and i found that to be true. there is no need for you to move your card

can I sign even if my build is not complete yet, but I already got my mobo this morning.

So what I got are these:

Asus Rampage IV Extreme
i7-3939K SB-E Processor
4x4GB Ripjaws Z 2133
LG Blu-ray Burner
Corsair 600T White SE
OCZ 1000W Gold PSU
2x2TB Barracuda XT 7200rpm 64MB cache HDD
240GB OCZ Vertex 3

Am still reading bout those water cooling setups so am still deciding which water blocks and others parts I need for this build. Am laso thinking if I should go GTX 670 or go directly to GTX 680.

Go for the 680. It's not that much more and you've already spent so much. It's like swallowing an elephant then choking on a gnat.

Graphics cards are really hard to remove from the first slot. I can't fit my finger in to release the clip on the first lane because that ROG heatsink is in the way. I'm sure everyone knows this but it was a pain this morning. I had to use a flat head.

I can't even use my computer until Monday. I returned my 2gb zotac 680 and ordered a EVGA 4gb FTW+ 680 with the backplate.

I need this computer for work, this is a situation where on board graphics would be nice with SB-E. Oh well I paid for next day air. It sux UPS doesn't deliver on Saturday.
