Specs: Windows 7
so we all know that graphics cards dont fit into a pcie x1 slot because its way too big but what if i were to throw lets say a sound card for pcie x1 in a pcie x16 slot. woud it f*** up because of the unused pins or work out smoothly?

Yes.

I've done it the past with a card reader. Worked without a hitch.

Edit: If I remember right, I had to put it in the slot furthest from the CPU because it conflicted with a graphics card.
