ok... so whats that 2 holes on back io?

each one with antenna logo

I'm guessing they're planning to release a wifi-enabled version of the board, so they left a spot for it so they don't have to redo their manufacturing.

These are for an internal wifi card so that you can attach external antenna to the back of the motherboard for better reception.

It appears to have an M.2 socket dedicated for WiFi, and page 38 of the manual gives you instructions on how to install a module. However, the board, itself, doesn't come with a preinstalled module.

then there will be a m.2 wifi port under rgb heatsink area, which doesnt look spacy enough

It doesn't have any wifi capabilities, those holes are there in case you wanted to install an m.2 pcie card

probably, though the motherboard does support m.2 key e wifi, is it possible that they have it set up so wifi can be routed using those holes instead of the mounts it comes with??
