Yes, I belive so. https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/B250I-GAMING-PRO-AC.html#productFeature-section

Under "Intel WiFi," it talks about it's WiFi and Bluetooth speeds (867Mbps and 25Mbps, respectively).

Did you install the cooler with the washer kit? 4 white pieces with a yellow guide? So w/o the backplate?

I have the same mobo and an M9, doesn't have the washer kit and the backplate doesn't fit. Have to wait until they send me one :((

I see you are using the dual fan version which doesn't have a backplate. I'm planning on add a piece of painted plexiglass on the back. Do you know if there is enough room on the back of the graphic card ? I'm asking because it looks like there are something in the way

Hey, we have nearly the same build! https://pcpartpicker.com/b/L9J8TW

Does the fan help out with the CPU significantly? Running SW Battlefront on max gives me temps around 58 C. The GPU hits something around 82 C. I wish there was more room in my case for some 80 mm fans to help with the GPU temps. How does yours do?

How's the card doing with the ATX PSU? I'm aiming at an SFX PSU (like Silverstone or Corsair) but I'd need custom cables since theirs are too short, plus an adapter...and I'm not sure it's worth the investment.
