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?
