Default Crossfire on Asrock Z77 Extreme4-M

Is this possible? I am considering crossfire on this motherboard, I haven't bought it yet. This motherboard is micro-atx and thats what I need, but I dont know if the 16x and 8x lanes are to close to each other to make a card fit wich uses 2 slots(HD7950).
Sorry for my weird explanation, but what I am trying to say is: there are three PCI slots available on this Motherboard. The specs for these are first is PCI-GEN 3.0 on 16 lanes, second is PCI E -GEN 3 x8, and the last one is PCI E 2.0 on 4 lanes. Ofcourse I want the cards on the X16 and X8 slots , but is this possible?
Sorry for my horrible english but already thanks for future answers!

It'll be 8/8 in Crossfire mode, and yes the 1st and 3rd slots will allow 2 dual slot cards.
