Hello everyone! My very first post! My question is in regards of this particular mobo, to be more precise, the PCIE ports. http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Fatal1ty Z77 Professional/ This Mobo brings only 2 PCIE X1- The very first one is almost unusable due to the cpu heatsink. The 2nd PCIE X1 is not much help because the current gpu im planing to install will partially occupy the PCIE X1 slot. Is use a dedicateed sound card on a PCIE X1 slot, therefore i need one of those 2 slot free, however there is one PCIE X16 slot on the bottom of the mobo. Do you reckon i could install the sound card on a PCIE X16 slot? And if so, would that slow down the PCIE speed lane of the main gpu from x16 to x8? Hope it makes sense Thank you !
