- z370i Strix
EDIT: another member asked me for an update via PM, I'll edit this for anyone else looking to fit the WIFI card into a NZXT H200 case.
The card fits. Just. There must be less than 1mm in it.
My motherboard is a Z370i Strix, it came with antenna pigtails that were pretty short so the one thing I did need to do was modify the silver bracket that hold the Wifi card and RP-SMA connectors.
The bottom antenna pigtail is too short to reach the top of the BCM943602CS card so I took a needle file and filed the bracket to move the RP-SMA connector about 1-2mm higher.
In another moment of the PC building planets aligning, I was able to move it up just enough to reach the connector and not modify the rear IO shield to keep it nice and clean looking.
You can buy longer ones but I couldn't find any locally and I didn't want to wait a month for one to arrive from China to make a start on the build. I'm in Australia, maybe you can find one on Ebay/Amazon to arrive quickly if you're in the USA.
If you do want to order online the one you want is a MHF4 to RP-SMA antenna pigtail. There's a ton of different sizes so make sure it says specifically MHF4 (0.81mm).
