Hi, I was wondering if anybody knows whether or not a PCIe x1 -> x16 adapter cable will work in any PCIe slot.  Or does it only work for x1 slots?  Thanks in advance!

works in any slot, but some motherboards will require you to short the two presence pins together if you're going to put a x1 cable into a x16 slot
