You may still lose two ports unless you want to squash cables.

I have two slots free so i can move them over so i can fit in my gfx card :) 
Basically where the sloth are closest to the pcie slot is where my straight sata cables are if i buy new right angle ones and put them in the slots furthest away from the pcie slot it should fit
