M2 Wifi Card for Gigabyte: GA-X99-UD4 (rev. 1.0)

Hi,

I currently have the following Motherboard:

Gigabyte: GA-X99-UD4 (rev. 1.0)

I would like to put a M2 Wifi Card in there - however there are different types. I am trying to determine what specs it uses exactly.

Can you give me the exact specification I need to make sure it fits the slot and I can screw it in properly?

Would the following card fit ?

Thanks,

Ward.

Yes, your board supports this with no problem.

Page 30 of the manual shows the details on how to install and fasten the Wi-Fi module into the M.2 Socket 1 connector:  http://download.gigabyte.us/FileList/Manual/mb_manual_ga-x99-ud4_e.pdf

And here's the actual module ... which, as you can see, is exactly as shown in the instructions for the manual.    http://content.etilize.com/Detailed-Specs/EN/1031270236.html
