  1. Triple slot means it covers 3. Look at the pictures:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131824

    Click on the image and select the flat view....

    Ya see the top PCI-E 3.0 x 16 slot ? .... that's where the card plugs in so that slot is blocked

    The PCIE x 1 slot below it would be blocked by a 2 slot card

    The black PCIE 2.0 slot below that will be blocked by a 3 slot card

    Yes, your card will fit. It will overhang the next two slots on your motherboard. Not a problem unless you have a use for those slots.

    For what it is worth, I think graphics cards with such fancy coolers are more for show than go.
    I would spend the price premium paid for them on something more productive, like a stronger card in the first place.

    I'll probably not use the slots, thanks for the help! Also the cooler is awesome! on guru3d the temps are below 50 degrees celsius which is just crazy low
