I bought my second gtx 670 ftw. Does it matter which pice slot I place it in. Im asking this cause I can place it right below my current gtx 670 but it only leaves bairly a centimeter between the cards and I feel like the air flow to the first card will be worse off.

Read ya MoBo manual .... it will tell you exactly what slots to use for GFX cards and Memory modules.

I like to buy large workstation type boards (Asus WS series for example) for exactly the reason you describe

Top x16 slot then skip the next x16 looking slot(it looks like x16, but is x4) and use the one right below that. Those are the only 2 x16 slots you have.

As JackNaylorPE says, it is right in the manual.

SLI always has less air flow to the top card. But with a full slot between, you are better than most.
