it is. I would have recommended the pro carbon if you had the budget for more rgb. but that one is a great board where you can hit some good results with your 8600k

the z370i is a mini-itx board, not atx

the z370 ac is with a wifi adapter

the z370 is without wifi adapter

 

I think both are great, it's for you if you think it worth it or just need a wifi adapter, as this is way better than a 20 dollar wifi adapter. but both boards are better than the ones you started with imo

My last question:

Thank all of you that helped me.
