    Given the following information, Can i put the GPU in the bottom slot. which is the brown slot. Reason im asking is im trying to squeeze a H80i in this corsair spec 2 case and the reservoir hangs down in just over the first PCI slot...

    1 x PCI Express 3.0/2.0 x16 slot [yellow] (at x16 mode) THE ONE BEING BLOCKED

    1 x PCI Express 2.0 x16 slot [dark brown] (max. at x4 mode, compatible with
    PCIe x1 and x4 devices) OPEN SLOT

    2 x PCI Express 2.0 x1 slots

    * The PCIe x16_2 slot shares bandwidth with PCIe x1_1 and PCIe x1_2 slot. The
    default setting is x2 mode. Go to the BIOS setup to change the settings.
