According to page 7 of the Firecoder Blu manual (from 2008), a PCIe x4, x8 or x16 slot will do if an x1 is not available.

I was planning on moving my BlackMagic Intensity Pro from an x1 slot to an x16 slot, to make way for the Firecoder Blu.

But if it's not necessary, I won't.

Does anyone have a horror story about putting a Firecoder Blu in a something other than a PCIe-x1 slot?
