You will have to check with the manufacture on the X-fi Fatal1ty Pro Series PCIe card working in a long slot
PCIE slot 2 and the PCI slot will be open
PCIE slot 4 will be covered
The CrossHair V Formula has SupremeFX X-Fi 2 HD audio built in
No offense Tweeky, but On-Board audio sucks!
None of it can compare to the quality of an actual Card... and I've tested this on numerous occasions.
Now granted, it also
has a lot to do with the quality of the speakers being used, but I still stand by my claim that no On-Board will ever compare with an actual card, especially when it comes to X-fi!
Now, the Manual may say, that you have to use 1 and 3.... but I figured someone had to have at least tried, running two cards, in slots 2 and 3 for example? I am very curious as to what would happen; and whether if they worked, if they would both still be running at x16...
See, on my Asus 890GX board, the primary PCIe slot is Slot two, the second to the top... and that makes me wonder what the primary slot is on the CH5?

My Titanium HD works fine in in a PCI e x16, x8 slot on my CHIVF.
I heard this too.. but until now hadn't seen or heard of anyone doing it with a Crosshair 4 or 5...
