I've connected the GPU (GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 770 2GB ) on the PCIEX16 slot as recommended by the manufacturer. I've a wifi-card to install and I'm not sure where should I put it... The problem is the GPU overlaps the PCIEX1 and this is where the wiki-card should go. Besides this if I put the wifi-card above the GPU it will obstruct the fans... :crazy:

Any ideas?

Thank you!

You can put the wifi card in the PCIe slots you want by the way :)

...that's almost true, as long as you don't have another component blocking the way! In my build the GPU take the space of 2 slots, and although the PCIEXP1 is free the GPU overlaps the slot, so, sadly I just can't connect there.

In yellow you can see the space that the GPU occupies. What I've done is to connect the wifi card to the PCIEXP4, and it works in terms of airflow...
