Just like the title says. i know you could use a2X card in a 4X board but never really paid much attention to 8X and the specs. so just want to know if you can use a 8x Card in a 4X mobo i'm 90% sure you can but want to make sure.

Thanks

Yep, you can. Right now i'm using a 5900XT 8X in a 4X mobo, and it works fine.

Most of them I believe you can. It strikes me that either at 2x or 4x there were 2 voltage possibilities and if the card is very old it won't work on newer boards. I think there's a physical notch added or moved for this.
