Asus HD 7870 Direct CU II fit in the Asrock Extreme4 z77?

I'm going to get an ASUS HD7870-DC2-2GD5 Radeon 2GB DDR5 VGA/DVI/HDMI/DisplayPort GPU Tweak Utilities PCI-Express 3.0 Graphics Card HD7870-DC2-2GD5 Direct CU II for my Asrock Extreme4 z77, but I'm not sure if the heatsink from the card will block any additional ports. Can anyone tell me if the board's gaps between the PCI slots can fit the massive heatsink? Thanks in advance :)

    No it wont... it's a double slot card. So if you use the top PCIe x16 slot you'll be fine and won't block anything. If you used the bottom PCIe x16 slot it would block the legacy PCI slot.

    Thanks, however, I'm using the Noctua NH D14 cooler, I think This may block that slot, but I'm not sure; will it?

    Depends how the fans are orientated. If they are set front to back you should be fine. If not, then using the bottom slot is no big loss unless you plan on using that legacy PCI slot.
