Aspect Et Al tested it ages ago, see for instance here:

QM lives well with special relativity (the physics community speaks of 
"peaceful coexistence") due to the fact that non-local effects can not 
be used for signalling.

QM and Relativity only clash at the level of General Relativity 
(gravity)- at Black Holes and other Singularities (Big Bang).
