Thinking about GigaByte GA-X58A-UD3R

I've been thinking about getting this board for my new system but I'm looking at the pictures and am a little worried about clearance for the PCIe x1 slots. It looks like the chipset heatsink rises well above the motherboard, blocking usage of both of these slots. I've got a Sound Blaster PCIe x1 card which would use one of those slots. Does anyone know if I'd have any clearance issues with that?

    The first PCIe x1 slot might be an issue depending on what you plan on putting there (won't fit the Sound Blaster PCIe x1).

    The second PCIe x1 slot will fit the Sound Blaster PCIe x1.
