I can see that this board has the same Pci-e spacing.
I can confirm that the top PCIe-slot is indeed very close to the CPU socket on the UP4. I have a passively cooled Sapphire card, the the cooling fins have one or at most two centimeters overhang at the "top" of the card so to speak. I have an Akasa Venom Voodoo CPU cooler and that makes it impossible to use the Sapphire card in the top slot. I would work if the cooler on the Sapphire card didn't have an overhang towards the CPU socket. But it does, and doesn't fit due to that. An ordinary graphics card with a backplate is probably a tight fit with the Akasa. I can take some unprofessional pictures if there is interest.
