Asus z97 mATX SLI Board

Go to solution Solved by jezza39,

Not even the Gene has the M2/Wifi combo any more, BUT the Maximus VII Gene has a mini PCIe slot up the top of the motherboard, so if you can find an mPCI-e wifi card, it will fit.

Hey everyone,

 

I'm looking to downsize my current rig and go with an mATX build in a Corsair 350d. I am currently searching for ASUS mATX z97 motherboards that will support SLI along with an ASUS PCE-N15 Wireless Adapter.

 

The Gryphon z97 mATX board looks promising, although it looks like the PCIE-1 slot will get covered by a graphics card.

 

Are there any mATX z97 boards that include built-in WiFi OR have a free PCIE-1 slot along with SLI support? Or am I going to have to get a USB wireless networking solution until I have the option for direct ethernet?

 

Please no recommendations for other form-factors/chipsets.

 

Thanks!!

But the second GPU will cover the slot. Read the original post, please.

I once had one of these, now I've got this.

Really? The second GPU will cover the mPCIe slot that is in the top left corner of the board?
