    A quick question,

    I have a Highpoint 4322 8x PCIe Raid card in Slot 3. Which is a 4x lane.

    Can I place the card in Slot 2 which is a 16x lane, will this let the card run at a full 8x times? and will there be any performance increase?

    Yes, you can place it in Slot 2, which could potentially speed things up. But it will depend on what you have attached to the card and how it's configured (drive type, count, and array level they're configured in).

    That card is isn't PCIe Gen 2.0, so they're capable of 250MB/s per PCIe lane. 4x lanes can allow 1GB/s, and double it for Slot 2 (8x lanes operational in a 16x lane slot).
