Thank's for figuring out the problem and giving feedback. Never had this myself. Good to know!

Very interesting indeed...

i think i actually have an idea now, it may still be solvable if i use the x16->x1 riser the miners use for GPUs. so it's not that bad, i may be able to claim x4 for my network card, and video speed may still be sufficient as long as i don't play games or videos which i usually don't there. that isn't ideal but it may work. sleeping with a problem can solve it.

maybe there are some settings about pcie lanes configurable in your intel mainboards bios?

yeah, that too, thought about it too. i'll see on next reboot but unlikely. it's not a common thing to have it on desktop boards
