Is it possible to use PCIE Gen3x4 slot not for graphic card? For example PCIE3 on this motherboard H570 Phantom Gaming 4.
Are there any restrictions or limitations when we use it for something else (if possible)?

Well what are you planning on using it for if not the GPU? not sure but it should work for something else.

I've done something similar with the B560M Pro4 and it works fine (not the same motherboard as you're using, but I think it'll probably be ok )

For reference, I use an x4 network card in the x16 slot PCIE1 that would normally be used for a graphics card (there's no graphics card installed as I was using integrated graphics).
The remaining, unused, slots on the board are the x1 PCIE2 (not wide enough to accommodate the x4 card) and x16 PCIE3
