Anyone use LSI SAS2008 based card in Ryzen 4x pcie chipset slot?

I'm thinking of buying one of these cards for my unraid box (real limited options for good sata cards with greater than 2 ports btw) and stumbled across this thread: https://forums.servethehome.com/index.php?threads/anyone-running-a-lsi-9211-8i-in-an-pcie-x4-slot.2942/

For my purposes, I'm going to run this in the 4x pcie 2.0 (16x physical) on my ryzen x470 board. I want to keep the other slots for graphics cards. So that thread gave me pause.

There are no Ryzen examples there, so I was wondering if anyone is doing this successfully?

I also thought maybe they needed to cover some of the pins on their card but that seems like a different issue.

It should work, and if it doesn't it's not because it's a Ryzen board, a specific board might have issues with that slot and an LSI, so you'd need to say what board you're using and hope someone else here is using the same.

I'm using a MSI x470 Gaming Plus. But I was more looking to see if anyone had installed that card on any Ryzen board in their chipset controlled slot and had it detect for some piece of mind.

 

I have some old PCI-e cards that just will not detect on this board that detect fine on other platforms, but they're all PCIe 1.0 devices.
