    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.

    According to Gigabyte the bottom PCIe slot is x8, so it should be OK.
