Default Fatal1ty 939

I bought the fatal1ty bored the other day. I was wondering there is two PCIEX slots for SLI and number 1 pciex slot runs right into the northbridge chipset. I have Water cooling and my northbridge water block would have to go right there and of course any PCIEX#1 card runs right over it so i would have to put it in PCIEX #2 slot. My question is Can I use PCIEX slot number 2 instead of number 1 so i can get the chipset cooler in there and have no problems?

Or should i just disasemble my water cooling and take the chipset block off?

Chipset H20 blocks dont work on SLI boards. You will have to get rid of the chipset block. There is a major performance hit when using the 2nd slot. I would not recommend it.
