yup that's the idea.

leave middle pcie slot empty (disabled with m.2 drive) and put your sound card into the 3rd bottom slot (disabling sata 3,4,5).

can be tricky reading those charts for sure. they can be so confusing at times it takes more than one of us to read and understand them. :)

Can you tell, How bad will this affect performance? using x2 instead of x4 or x16 for sound card?

i am not sure how much bandwidth a sound card needs. can't say i have ever read any info on such a thing.

a reread of the spec sheet shows i misread the sata ports disabled though. it is only sata 4 and 5 that get disabled when using that last slot. so you get sata 3 port for a total of 4.

you'll need to look at the spec sheet for the card and see if it has any info there. not knowing what card you have i can't help there
