MOBO = ASUS P877-V Premium

GPU = ASUS GTX 680

The GPU is hugemongus. It takes up three slots.

I have a CPU Cooler = http://www.antec.com/Believe_it/product.php?id=Mjc2OA==...
But it won't fit if I put the GPU in PCI-e Slot 1

What are the consequences if I put the GPU in Slot2?

I'd rather just get a new CPU Cooler than sacrifice performance..but not sure if that is the case.

Thanks in advance for your input.

I run my GPU in slot 2. Its not a huge deal. Just moves the GPU down.
