I don't think I could fathom risking my processor and I know the wife would kill me if I tried to upgrade after screwing something like that up.

I am about to do this exact same thing. I currently have sound card on very bottom PCI-E 1X slot...figured if my sound card doesn't block the GPU fan I may just leave it there....or try the very top slot.

I've got one GPU in mine right now with a soundcard in the "top" slot, the one closest to the CPU. My buddy is getting a 7950 tomorrow and we're gonna try Crossfire, I'll let you know how it goes. thumb.gif

Thanks! About how much room is there between the PCB and the sound card?

Not a lot, few MM at best. It's an MSI 7950 TF3 and Xonar STX if that helps. The card pretty much touches the back of my 7970 Lightning when it's installed.

Oh wow...yea that is pretty close....I have reference GTX 680 with another reference on the way. I know the the PCB isn't packed with all the stuff that the Lightning has so we'll see how it goes. I'll upload Pics when I get both cards in. I'm also going to put the VGA Air Duct with my Haf X case to help with temps. I got the Scythe Ultra Kaze 120mm with 131 CFM thumb.gif

I am running 2 GTX 670 and a Sound Blaster Recon 3D at the top 1x slot. I think I'll be upgrading to the new SB-Zx soon.

I believe I have a board with a faulty ethernet adapter. Already tried reinstalling drivers and checking for updates but it's been flaky since the beginning. It'll show activities in the properties but no Internet connection. It'll work for a bit then just drop the connection completely but still shows activities as far as packets sending and receiving.
