My System Specs


I don't like the looks of the expansion slot layout...
For one, the x1 at the top will be blocked by the heat sink (unlike my lower-end 770 Giga which has half the heat sink cut out to prevent this).
From the looks of the shot at 6:43, two of the four physically x16 PCI-E slots are electrically x8; the first and third down from the "NB" heat sink are full x16, which may mean a video card starved for air if you run dual cards with the x16 electrical slots.

Did I miss something or is there no IDE connector to speak of? I may have to replace my IDE DVD-RAM drive
