SSD NVMe in a Gen2x4 slot, Bad Idea?

My second M.2 slot is rated a "M.2 Socket (PCIe Gen2 x4)"

Will putting a M.2 NVMe SDD in there be a bad idea? or will I just be losing out on speeds.
Really wondering if I will have any compatibility issues.
Only using this for a Data Drive, already using my other M.2 slot as Boot.

Board: ASRock Fatal1ty X370 Professional Gaming
OS: Win10 x64
GPU: RX Vega64

Also curious, will I have any lane issues on X370 and 1700X ??

    It's not a bad idea.
    Just you can't use second M.2 slot together with PCIE5 slot (one of them gets disabled, when other is used).
