    My motherboard is the asus Z270F
    https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/ROG-STRIX-Z270F-GAMING/

    (had no idea there was a wifi verison)- should've got that one... lol

    anywho, my motherboard has
    two m.2 slots an the first one is as follows:
    M.2 Socket 3 Type M (2242-2280)
    Supports PCIe3.0x4 mode

    the second one:
    M.2 Socket 3 Type M (2242-22110)
    Supports SATA & PCIe 3.0 x 4 modes

    my wifi adapter is coming from an h170 mobo that was in my G20 CB ... will it work in one of these M.2 slots or will i have to get an adapter? i am sick of usb dongle type wifi adapters thats why i am asking
