Swapping out Asus P8Z77-I wifi module

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So the module uses an mPCIe interface, but it's half height. I'm looking for an mPCIe to PCIe 1x adapter.

A post here from April last year suggested this:
http://www.hwtools.net/Adapter/PE4L%20V2.1.html
But $70 is pretty steep, and I'm in the UK.

I've also found this:
http://linitx.com/product/mini-pci-express-card-to-pci-express-x1-socket-9cm-cable-left-sided/12894

Which is perfect, except that the mini pcie side has to be half height to fit in my Asus P8Z77-I mpcie slot. I called up the site, they say they have no half-height ones.

Does anyone know of such a creature? Trawling Ebay has just turned up a lot of false positives (because people are naming their "small" pcie adapters as "mini" pcie), and I'm out of ideas...

Probably, but not for my purposes. That just swaps out a wifi/bluetooth module for another wifi/bluetooth module...

Gotcha.. just reread your post.

I was looking at swapping the module because it wasn't AC compatible.
