I am confused...

I have the GA Z390 Aorus I Pro Wifi and tried to replace the Intel CNVI Card with BCM94352Z, card is not even detected in Mojave.

Can someone please explain if there is a way to use this slot to make Wifi and BT work?
Hello! I have the same motherboard, but no way to use that slot. A solution is as I described a few comments back. Or, if you're interested, only Bluetooth you can get:

IOGEAR Bluetooth 4.0 USB Micro Adapter

I'm not sure if continuity and Handoff work. I'm waiting to get my purchase to try. It would be great to work OOB.

Hi! First of all, thank you for sharing your build. It is very amazing. I would like to do same build, and I have just a question. Is it possible to buy the GIGABYTE Z390 I AORUS PRO without WiFi since WiFi/Bluetook will be replaced? Thank you again :)

UPDATE: I'll reply myself. The version without WiFi does not exist. :)

Another question, does Airdrop work? And i7 will works at same way? Thank you :)

No. Only CNVi cards are supported. USB dongle required.
I'd use an Airport Express or other WiFi to 1000bt adapter and save the USB ports.

Thank you for your reply. So AirDrop works via BT? I'm confused, I thought it worked with WiFi... :)
Airdrop uses either Bluetooth or WiFi but you have to have both enabled for it to work. I have the OSXWiFi card. Crazy expensive but it works.

Thank You for you share with this build!
I have been planning for a while which I would like to build with Z370N since cases showing Onbroad WiFi could be replaced.

However, Z370N is no longer available in my market (Hong Kong) and I would like to change to the MB you are using.

May I finally reconfirm from you if onboard WiFi would be replaced with BCM94360CS2 NGFF M.2 which I get from China?
