There doesn't appear to be enough space below the 1 PCIE slot in the case to add another.

With that said... Why are you looking to add a second PCIE slot to that case?

I love the size, the height mainly.

I can't see you getting a second PCIE slot in there, not without some major modification. You might take a look at the Fractal Node 304 or the Core 500. They're a bit taller, but have 2 slots.

It'd be a lot of work, but I think you could manage if you slid the whole motherboard to the left (looking from the back). You'd have to dremel a lot of the back out, and you'd lose the vent on that side (or it'd be passive anyway).

Looked at a few more pictures online and with the PCIE slot where it is, if you slid everything to the left you would then run into the support bar that runs front to back. Not saying it's not do-able, just is it worth the effort? Hell I shoved two PCs into one case before they started making case that can accommodate two motherboards.
