Default Gigabyte EX58-UD5/Exteme able to fit Forte?

Well, not that I'm designing my new build (SSSSH don't tell anyone!), and I've been checking out the EX58-UD5 or more likely the Extreme, but looking at the layout has me worried about it fitting a Auzentech Forte card.

As anyone who has seen the card, while it's small per say, it holds it own when it comes to the length, and I dunno, it's looking like the card just won't fit, which would be quite depressing.

Anywho, anyone able to contribute their 2 cents?

Edit, apparently I'm not looking for a Gigabyte, but a Igabyte! /facepalm

If it doesnt fit in the 1x then drop it in that 4x slot just under it. Should work just fine.

I have no clue, maybe the stock gigabyte sound card solutions they have kicking around fit there, they are pretty short. The other extreme board has one that fits in that spot.
