Motherboard slot question

I have an MSI Big Bang X-Power and Two HD 5870's I want to put in CrossfireX.

This motherboard has Six PCI express slots. I would like to know exactly which slots are the PCIe 2.0 x16, and not x8 or x4.

If you put a high-end graphics card in a x8 or x4 slot, the bottleneck can slow it down quite substantially.

Out of these six slots, which are the x16 slots?

    Will the crossfire cable stretch between E2 and E5?
  5. Yes it'll.. The slot placements have been designed keeping that in mind..
