Default OCZ RevoDrive 240GB PCIe X4 Sandforce SF-1200 in x16 or?

sorry for the newbie question...

i have a "OCZ RevoDrive 240GB PCIe X4 Sandforce SF-1200" and want to install it in a "ASUS P8H67-M Evo REV3.0 mATX H67 LGA1155 2PCI-E16 PCI-E1 PCI DP HDMI Sandy Bridge B3 Motherboard".

slot 1 on the mobo is "PCIe 2.0 (at x16 mode)" and slot 4 is "PCIe 2.0 (at x4 mode)".

does the "X4" in my drive name imply that i would have no advantage installing in slot 1 then i would in slot 4?

thanks in advance.

My System Specs

Default x4

the revodrive runs a x4 pci-e so there would be no advantage to using slot one...put your vid card in that slot to take advantage of the x16
