Probably not. If you have the dual SLI bridge though why does it really matter?

Just use the dual bridge....

With the dual bridge you have to use PCIex slot 1 and 3 (on my XFX 790i at least, since the 2 way SLI bridge is hard). This can be annoying on setups that need space under the lowest card (for instance; W/C tubing in a tight space). But I don't know if it will work
