Alright, I've been wanting to get a sound card. I was looking at this one, a Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi Titanium: It's PCI-e x1. Problem is this: The PCI-e slot on my mobo is butted up basically against the back of the PCI-e x16 slot. Also, the cooler I put on my vid card has a backplate with rather large thumbscrews. (The other PCI-e slot is basically covered by the fans on the other side of the cooler) What I was wondering was if someone who happened to have this soundcard might maybe measure (preferably cm or mm) from the PCB on it to the tallest capacitor or whatever, just to see if it would clear the thumbscrews. In the meantime, I have to try and triangulate the distance between the slot and the screws using string or something, seeing as a ruler won't fit in there <_< . Any help is mucho appreciated-o.
