I'm building a station with these components:

Intel Core i9-12900KF (3.2 GHz / 5.2 GHz)
nVidia 3090 FE
be quiet! Silent Loop 2 360mm
Gigabyte Z690 AORUS Tachyon
Corsair Vengeance DDR5 32 Go (2 x 16 Go) 5200 MHz CL40 - Noir
Samsung SSD 980 PRO M.2 PCIe NVMe 2 To
be quiet! Silent Base 802 (Noir)
be quiet! Straight Power 11 850W 80PLUS Platinum

I have a question concerning the pcie lanes,
The cpu has 20 of it so: 4 for the nvme drive, 8 for gpu(enough no need to use 16) and 8 for a Decklink 8k Pro.
The initial plan was to have 4 physical 4k inputs and switch between the decklink and a elgato camlink pro (4HDMI) depending of the production.
But I saw that the elgato uses only 4 pcie lanes.

So my question is: if I mount my nvme drive on the chipset lanes to gain 4 lanes, and mount both Elgato and BM capture cards, will I be able to use it at the same time?
I'm only talking about the pcie limitations, maybe 8 4k inputs will be too much for the machine but could 6 4k or 8 HD work like this?

Thank you in advance
