no, the specification says:
1 x PCIe 4.0 x16 (max at x4 mode) , it only states that it is a physical x16 slot but electrically working @ x4 mode.

What´s you graphics card?
Gtx 1660 super in display properties show psi e x8 3.0 and gpu z show x4 3.0
I am only wory about lossing performances

Can you share a picture of your cooler install. It seems very odd for a cpu cooler to block a pcie slot but they can block memory slots. Wondering if it’s mounted in the wrong orientation.
no i mount on right way. but have maybe one inch space between cpu cooler and gpu, and gpu go over fan on motherboard that is reason why i install firstly on second slot...
