Intel Wi-Fi AC query


I'll try to keep it brief.

MSI motherboard Z170 A Tomahawk - there is an AC version and an non-AC version = AC has WI-fi the other does not.

Both boards have a dedicated M.2 slot for "Intel 8260 Wi-Fi Bluetooth Module" - there is also a WIFI bluetooth bracket - and antenna bracket (for back of PC case)_2 x screw on antenna's and CD/DVD drivers disk seen on the very first page on the USER MANUAL PDF.

Now is it possible to buy a kit with all of this in??? - Quite cheaply? - I've seen little bits of the kt online but not the whole lot?

>>>I do have a Fenvi WiFi PCI-e card which is excellent - and this is the best choice but I ask about this in case anyone knows of a ready to go to solution to use a dedicated M.2 / NGFF WiFi included on a motherboard.

Presumably Intel make these for MSI.

If someone knows of this please mention - if not I'll just leave it as it can be a wild goose chase
