    Why don't people ever read their manual

    https://dlcdnets.asus.com/pub/ASUS/m..._UM_V2_WEB.pdf

    page 1-7, item 4 > PCIe 3.0x16_2 slot

    The very first slot (small) is a pcie 3.0 x1 slot, the 2nd one is the first x16 slot and should be able to be used just fine even with that cooler. I'm running a Scythe Mugen 5 PCGH edition which is larger than yours in dimensions and i have zero problems occupying the first x16 slot.

    Hi , ty for your answer, but i want to say you that i have read the manual, i asked about PCIe 3.0 x16_2 slot !
    I wanted to know if it is possible to install the graphics card on the second PCIe 3.0_2 x16 slot (not on the first), regardless manual that reccomend PCIe 3.0 x16_1 slot for single VGA!
