Perhaps a really dumb question but I'm curious if I can plug rightly (without risers and/or extender cables) a PCI-E x16 card onto a PCI-E x1 slot, if there is enough room around in the motherboard.

In other threads I've read that connecting x1 -> x1 cable to x16 card is possible and simple. So I wonder if it is possible doing this without the cable.

Hello,

this works, i did it with a mainboard where the 16x pcie slot was broken.
But you have to cut the 1x slot open so the card can fit in... and you may
get problems with heatsinks or sata connectors which get into the way.
Getting a riser is probably a better solution.
