That is done on a X58.
Most mother board that support X16 + X4 are budget board , the X4 lane been controlled by the chipset. What good will do you by adding extra latency between cpu and gpu? A good headache from the Micro Stuttering.
But don't take my words for it, best way to find out is to experiment.
A much much better scaling review.
