It’s simple but be careful:
Remember that you will be performing a hardware modification on your board, so have anti-static protection and be careful not to harm your board in the process.

- If you are going to use it with windows you need the Bootcamp Drivers.
Remove the board from your computer and disconnect any cables, ram, cooling etc. You don’t have to remove the processor.

The card is in place with foam tape and a top anti static tape, Remove the antenna cables and careful detach the old wifi card from the foam tape.
Try not to brake too much the foam tape as you’re going to use it for the new card. You will only use 2 of the antenna cables, the 3rd one you are not going to use it.

Nice guide! Note this process is pretty much the same for all Asus x299 boards since the Wi-Fi card is removable
