Default PCIe riser question

I put together a matx build a few months ago, its working well but I want better audio. Problem is I have crossfire on a matx board. There is no room left down there, so I started looking at PCIe ribbon risers. Ordered a cheap one and it wont work, not because of build quality but because of height. Has anyone seen a pcie ribbion thats more flush with the pcie slot then the one one listed here?

I was looking forward to the vaporware that coolits gpu cooling solution to open up my slots, but I think I might be waiting a long time. I use this PC for work, so downtime because of a custom loop is not an option. This is just mostly for tinkering in my off time.
