Did you ever get to the bottom of this? I Prefer this mobo over the ASRock x470 but the slower wifi and BT 4.2 are holding me back. I want to utilize the intel 9260 wireless card and drivers instead that are found in the ASRock. Thanks Capt!

Board form factor looks the same, but that's no guarantee: M.2 2230

It should work just fine, the X470-I just uses a standard M.2 like Cosminnn mentioned, here's a picture for reference:

The antenna cable connections on the board, are soldered or there is some kind of connecting/connectivity involved. I mean you can buy other board on the market, but as bulk, you need the metal part ( shielding probably,besides outside antenna connection) to install it on the board.

Those just use the standard micro coax connector, its the same on all the m.2 wifi cards. Any m.2 model should just screw into the X470-I's shielding enclosure without issue.
