Thank You for you help, I give it a try
Hello, I have the same motherboard and it works great with an Asus Strix GTX 750ti oc videocard, thanks to your very detailed guide, Stork! My only concern is that the led doesn't blink when the computer sleeps, it's just off, but wake works perfectly by pressing any keyboard key or mouse button. Is it possible to make it blink? Did I miss something in the Bios?
Edit: well, I think it's a "feature" of this motherboard:
"Connects to the power status indicator on the chassis front panel. The LED is on when the system is operating. The LED is off when the system is in S3/ S4 sleep state or powered off (S5)." page 26 of the manual. Too bad
Nope. I don't know the answer.
I have a question. I recently downsized my PC and went with a Gigabyte H97N-WIFI and would like to have Wifi-BT. I have my old card that I connected by PCIex1. Its this one:
4 Antennas 802.11AC Wifi BCM94360CD Wireless Network Card with Bluetooth 4.0 OS X Yosemite 10.10
I see that there is a Mini-PCIe adapter that can be used but what about the antennas? How can I connect the antennas if the card has 4 connectors and the MB only has 2? Or can I use a Broadcom BCM94352HMB instead? Thank you.
See the above for how I just "hung" the other two antennas out the back of the case. Works fine.
The mini PCIe adapter should work, but protect the WiFi/BT PCIe card so it doesn't short out. But, you can take the BMC94360CD card off the PCIe card and use the adapter that I did. Again, the link above explains how I did it.
Thanks Stork for the info and the link. I don't know if I would want to do that. Will the Broadcom BCM94352HMB work? Will this card give me Handoff? If it works does it need kext or is it OOB? If worse comes to worst then I'll use my card. Thank you again.
I am not familiar with the BCM94352HMB card as I've never used one.
I've moved the H97N to another case that has spare case PCIe slots (the H97N only needs one), and I found a PCIe case slot panel that had two antenna mounts on it. (I can't think of the correct name for this item nor can I remember where I got it.) I use it with six inch antenna leads to move the two other antennas to stick out the back of the case like your PCIe card.
UPDATE: See Post #41 in this build description thread for the item in the above paragraph.
This card works out of the box in Sierra, it shows as a 3rd party card but can easily be cosmetically changed using a Clover patch. In El Capitan it needed two patches to enable both 2.4GHz and 5GHz along with the Airport rename, but in Sierra it works.
Do you have an Amazon or Newegg link for the card?
This is an amazon/uk link, the top review is from a hackintosh user. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00IFY8AGO/?tag=tonymacx86-21 Included in the the review is the patch details from skvo, this patch is also included by toleda in his config.plist here [Guide] Airport - PCIe Half Mini v2
Here is the linked card includes Bluetooth that can be enabled by RehabMans kext. This is the what I have in my Asus Deluxe build, it comes with it and works out of the box.
