The x1 slots and the bottom black slot (x4) get their lanes from the chipset. Running the sound card in one of them shouldn't throttle the GPU. Check your manual to be sure.
Not many sound cards does accept running on the black slot x4, some motherboard allow to change that black slot to x2 mode in bios, which is the max output a PCI-E sound card can have in general. Not too good for the sound card that will receive to much power and might burnt. So is the same on the with red lane, unless this one does x4.
Seriously? That's just wrong! A PCI-e card of any kind will run on no more that the lanes it was designed for and draw no more power than it was designed for. You can run a x1 card in a PCIe slot designed for x16 without any problems to that card (you may throttle another card running in a shared slot as I mentioned above). I've never seen a PCI-e sound card that needed more than one PCIe lane (x1) and they will run just fine in any PCI-e slot. I have one running in an x4 slot right now and it's been doing just fine for almost two years now.
Yeah your right, my bad...I've used my sound Card for more than one year on the black slot x4 (set in bios x2) but went on trouble lately with conflict which was remapping the audio channels constantly, so swapped to regular PCI-E x1 for better stability.
The instruction manual says to prefer x1 or x4 but not x16 because of conflicts of Interrupt Request (IRQ) with the graphics card that could lead to block the entire system or very bad performances, this IRQ conflict gave me a wrong view , at least for the creative Sound Blaster Z.

PS: Conflict started when i changed my HD7770 to R9 270x graphics, thought it was stable at one moment so let in the x4 slot but since i tested a catalyst beta it had messed up the all thing and after removing beta it didn't fix the conflict.

I put tape over my block of wood and vice and had a anti-static bag ready to catch it but all it did was get loose then I could pry it apart.

Yeah, you really surprised on that one since you have always been dead on before. Stuff happens.

Yes stuff happens, i almost tried everything to get rid off the conflict.
Did remapped ports the with .inf chipset, reinstalled Intel management interface, reinstalled Rapid Storage, Sound card drivers plus unmount and putted back the Soundcard, uninstalled deeply Catalyst Beta and got rid off Amd lower filter PCI Bus. None fixed the conflict. Thought my PSU on the 12v rail was weak too or my sound card fried.
