View Full Version : Can Top PCI-E slot on Striker II Formula be used?

This slot is meant to be reserved for the Supreme FX II that comes with the Striker 2.

Can you use this slot with an X-Fi Fatal1ty Titanium PCI-e?

I'm asking becuse I'm currently thinking of getting a Striker 2 and having GTX 260 or 280 SLI and using my current XtremeMusic in the middle of them, and later on if I decide to go Tri-SLI I can sell my X-Fi and use the X-Fi PCI-e in the top slot?

Will this work?

I don't see why it wouldn't. But I'm not certain. Have you tried contacting Asus about it?

Hm just saw this from a review:

This slot is intended for the audio daughterboard (there's no audio codec on the motherboard) and can only accept a card that's 17mm longer than its 1x PCI-E connector, precluding the use of a third-party sound card in this slot
