    Default Asrock X79 Extreme9 w/ Game Blaster & CrossfireX/SLI?

    So I have the Asrock X79 Extreme9 with the Game Blaster Audio/LAN Card installed. In the future, I will be getting a pair of Sapphire 11200-01-20G Radeon HD 7850's. I am wondering if it is still possible to install those 2 graphics cards in a CrossFireX configuration, because the Game Blaster is a little tall. Will the CrossFireX Bridge be blocked by the Game Blaster or will it clear?

    Thanks for any replies!

    Here is a link to the Graphics Cards : Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 11200-01-20G Radeon HD 7850 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card OC

    Hi there. it will clear easily. I have 2x6990s installed and it works fine. Its a real pity that you have to install the GameBlaster in the pcie x1 slot and dont have to option to use any pcie slot :(

    Oh my gosh. Thank you first of all for that answer, but you saying "you only have to the option to put the game blaster in the x1 slot solves my other problem by the sound card not working.

    Thank You so much! :)

    Its a pleasure bud. However, I do thik that the guys from Asrock could have told us this or atleast made it very clear that the sound card only works in that damn slot.
