    Can i put my video card in my 2nd PCIe slot and a sound card in the one closes to the CPU?

    would like to feed sold air directly to my video card but my sound card is getting in the way!

    Really depends on the motherboard. There are actual reasons for keeping the GPU closer to the CPU besides just motherboard restrictions.

    It's an H8QM-E if that helps
