Motherboard for LGA1155, SLI GTX 670

Hey guys, recently i bought a second GTX 670, EVGA and GIGABYTE. Anyways upon installing them I came across a problem... I found when I was trying to install my second card I was unable to due to the sata cables being directly in line with my PCI slots. So now I'm resulting to buying a new motherboard that will entirely avoid this problem and let both cards sit nice withotu any airflow restrictions or complications. If anyone needs pictures of this for fruther detail I can attach them.

Thanks!

Power supply: OCZ MOD-x-STREAM PRO power supply 700W
Motherboard: Gigabyte Z68MA-D2H-B3
CPU: Intel Core i5 3570k
Chassis: Antec Nine Hundred Two Ver3.0 Black Gaming Case
Resolution: 1920x1080p (Dual monitors)
GPU(s): GIGABYTE WINDFORCE GTX 670 OC Edition 2GB/EVGA FTW 670 2GB

  1. Please change the question to LGA 1155 motherboard as the 3570k doesn't fit in an LGA 1150 socket.

    The sata ports are right angled so that should help with the sata cable issue.

    Hi, sorry that was a typo, that's exactly right. I meant to type 1155. I'll take a look at it. Do they ship to Australia?
    i still do fear since they are quite chunky cards the sata ports might be a problem...

    Oh, you like in Australia. Then its difficult. I suggest you get one from amazon.com, they may send it to australia.
