    Question PCI Express Compatiblity

    I'm currently brainstorming ideas for a new computer build. I would like to add a raid card to the PC. I found a 3ware raid card that is compatible with linux. So I have that end picked out. The card is a PCI Express X4 card. Question, can a PCI Express X4 work in a PCI Express x8 slot. I know the slot sizes are bigger but will the X4 card fit and only use the pin count it needs to work? Any help would be great full.

    Quite surprised that no one has any input about this. I thought someone other than myself has had this question.
