Maximus VI Formula Sound card addin option

I am about to pull the trigger on another build. I liked my V Formula so naturally am gravitating to the VI formula. The GPU's I am going to use will not allow me to use a addin card in the slot between them like I did on my last build. IS their an issue using the very top slot for a sound card when using two cards in SLI?

Shouldnt have an issue as long as your top gpu doesnt have a mounting bracket that exceeds the slot. Also check your cpu cooler, some like Thermalright Silver Arrow SBE are so wide that will pass through the first PCIe x1 slot.

The only thing you need to keep in mind is what cooling you use on the CPU of course.

Cool, thanks everyone! Im going under water so CPU will be clear. GPU should be clear. Ill wait till i test the onboard audio first before deciding for sure. But wanted to get my ducks in a row so to speak incase..
