Hmm I have an Asus P7P55D Pro. Not sure what the difference is having the non pro version. I know the "-e" means you have USB 3.0, but that only works when you have free PCIe lanes.

In my set up, I'm running two 5850s in 8x/8x in the top two 16xPCIe lanes - they're separated by 2 1xPCIe lanes. I have my AuzenTech Bravura 7.1 card in the second 1x lane. I then have a GT 240 in the bottom most 16xPCIe lane, which runs through the south bridge at 4x - I think you probably don't have this one.

Anyway so my advice is to make sure the sound card is in a 1x slot.

1.My sound card installed in slot PCIe x1 (it contain PCIe x1 3 slots on mobo, and tested all slots).
2.CCC display information HD5670 one in slot x16 and one in slot x4 (Link).

Thanks and advise please.

I believe that it is a limitation of your board and the pci-e controller on the cpu. 1156 employs a mcm design and it is well known that the cpu only has 16 pci-e lanes. Beyond that there isn't much I can do to help you. So you may have to go with out corssfire or the audio card. The on board audio is good enough these days for most users while this is for the audiophiles.
