Just a question, is it possibile to add other PCI-e card in order to make WiFi available?

I already bought the above and am still waiting for delivery. I hope it will work with M.2 NVMe key M slot on the back side. Z390i still has USB 2 internal header beside USB 3 header.

Hi, you need a NGFF connector (M.2), the back is Socket 3, M key, type 2260/2280 SATA and PCIe x4/x2 SSD Support).

I think you'll need an adaptor like this:

But if you manage to make it work with that do not forget to comment as it was!

Also I would like to have WiFi and BT, Greetings, Mark

It depends WiFi card you'll use it. If you use M.2 key E WiFi card like DW 1560/1830, yes, you need that converter (key M to key E).
But, if you use Apple WiFi card, than you still need 1 another converter (key E to apple).
I think, if we use 2 converters, clearance between MB and case is not enough to accommodate apple wifi card BCM94360.

This converter convert key M to native Apple WiFi card directly. So, we just need 1 converter. Clearance will be enough (I hope).

Excellent! I hope it works, please as soon as you try me tags to also try it. Although I am thinking of buying a sdd of 1TB to put back :(

Your USB3 ports are working well? I'm struggling to make it work, I made a usbmap. kexts but I think it's not working at all well

Not build yet; still waiting some part. Converter takes 1 months for shipping (from China).
My plan 2 M.2 NVMe for dual boot. But now I must use 1 slower 2.5" SATA SSD, cause of Apple WiFi card not work on Z390i CNVi M.2

I used this one in the CNVI slot on the Z370N with a BCM94360CS2. It works perfectly. No problems with sleep or wake. I am planning to use the same setup in the Z390I Aorus Pro Wifi. But, I am waiting to get the adapter.

I see no reason why it would work in one CNVI slot but, not on another.

Well...Good to know
Sadly as I was told that it it only CNVI only and not compatible with M2.... I changed my MB to Asrock Z390 Phantom Gaming ITX...:lol:
