I want to buy this motherboard http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/PID-MX22683(ME).aspx but it only has 1 pci-e x1 port which would be covered by my graphics cards huge heatsink, so is it possible to use the other 2 lanes at the same time, both with pci-e x1 / x4 components ?
I asked almost the same question but I asked if someone has this board and is there enough clearance for a sound card in the PCIe x1 slot. My Sapphire 4890 is huge! I was curious why the x1 slot is sandwiched between the PCIE x16 slots which is weird when the board is marketed as SLI/Crossfire board. <shrugging>
