Hi, I am planning to build a new desktop based on a Ivy bridge processor (I know still to be launched).

So, I was considering using Intel motherboard DH77KC or DH77EB.

The technical specs say that they both have "One PCI Express Mini Card connector with support for mSATA Solid-State Drive"

I was wondering if I can directly use Intel WiFi + Bluetooth card 6230 in it.



Would I need any extra adapter or converter?

Thanks..

As someone pointed in the comments for that mini card, this one is better
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0038A9HSK/ref=cm_cr_a..., and yes you can plug this in directly.

I have to ask though, why not go with a P8Z77-V ASUS board that has built in Wireless and WiFi GO feature?

H77 is an older platform, and Z77 boards are designed to take advantage of Ivy Bridge improvements.

Hey thanks for the reply!!

I was thinking of that one (6230) because it is WiFi + Bluetooth whereas the one that you said is WiFi only.

Also the board that you mentioned P8Z77-V costs more than $200 whereas I was looking for something cheap like $100-120 or so.

The H77 is not an older platform right? Correct me if I am wrong but H77 and Z77 were launched at the same time a week back and they both support Ivy bridge processors with the only difference being that Z77 will allow you to overclock?

Thanks..

Ahhh, yes you are right, I see "H" in chipset and I think of the old H61 and H67 but obviously since it's H77 it's for Ivy Bridge.

Of course, get which wireless card works best for you, I just saw that one with much better reviews and thought I'd mention it.
