ps.: yeah, sorry I know this debate is about overclocking these motherboards, CPUs and memory but I have no idea where else to ask these questions.
Here in the U.S. the price difference is only $20 so IMO the WIFI version is definitely worth it. You also get Bluetooth 5.0.

20' away and through two plaster walls I get anywhere from 250-500 mpbs download and my upload always hits 500 mpbs (currently have 500/500 fiber). It generally depends on what server you're downloading from but the specific antenna that comes packaged seems a little bit better than most of the off brand AX200 cards you can buy on the market atm. For instance downloading from steam I peak at 64 MB/s dl and hover around 54 MB/s over wifi.

Sam64 In Germany the price difference is only 5,- Euro, Adventurer_ . That's why i didn't hesitate and took the wifi-version. And it's working as specified, but I only made a short test, since I'm using wifi only as backup, which can be handsome in case my cable-provider is down, which happens rarely, but it happens...

Sam64 Thanks also from me for the warm welcome. Here is my new rack, just built up last week (still needs some cable-management work to be done) I like your clean setup KingEngineRevUp, well done. My Lian Li case is nice, but doesn't have that much space...
