I have a GTX 670, and looking to switch to Intel, the Motherboard im looking at is an ASUS ROG Maximus V Gene - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168..., and I want to know if the long GTX 670 will get in the way of the RAM slots? The GTX 670 is a Zotac and seems quite large and want to know if it'll interfere with a Micro ATX motherboard in the first PCIe slot. and if so does using the card in the 2nd PCIe any different than the 1st?

I have the older version (Z68) of that MB and it rocks! the layout is mostly the same. I am running a GTX 590 (much bigger than the 670) and I have no issues with it interfering with RAM. if i remember right, the ram bank clips closest to the GPU are fixed, only the ones opposite actually un-clip.

I am running 4x4GB or the low profile Vengeance
