Anyone install both PCIe 4 & PCIe 3 NVMe on Gigabyte X570 Master?

Hi all. I posted this to the forums and so far no one has come back saying they've tried this.

I currently have a 1TB Aorus PCIe 4 NVMe drive in my top M2 slot on my Gigabyte X570 Master and it's working well and I plan to buy a 2TB Intel 660p PCIe 3 drive to place in the second slot in order to retire an old HDD I have.

I've been reading that people have been having trouble running some NVMe drives (mostly to do with Windows 10 installation), and was wondering whether anyone has successfully installed two drives of different PCIe generations while maintaining the faster performance of the newer drive. I'm mostly concerned that some people have had to set their PCIe settings to 3rd generation for compatibility (although this seems to primarily affect graphics cards).

Any experiences appreciated, cheers

I have a Corsair MP600 in the top slot running PCIE4, Intel 600p 1TB in slot 2 running PCIE3, never touched anything in the BIOS. The top drive benches at it's rated speeds according to Crystal diskmark.

I have a Hero 8 with 1 Gen 4 , 1 Gen 3 in the slots and a Gen3 in a PCIE slot , all MVMe . All the drives work at expected speeds.
