Default SB titanium HD PCIe install question

I have ordered a new titanium HD, is it possible to install it in the PCIe slot 7 which is a full length pcix4 slot on the P8P67 deluxe? The PCIe x1 slot on the mobo is above the vid card and would rather mount it further away if possible. See mobo layout below:

PCIe slots accept any card that can physically fit in them.
So any slot higher than the one required will work, in your case ANY PCIe slot (as the SB is a PCIe x1).

So, there should be no problem for you plugging the card in slot7.
