I'm wondering 2 things:

1. Is either the M.2 slot or the PCI-E slot on the Asus Z390-A compatible with the connector of the Intel AC 9260. The specifications seem to say so but looking at the connector on the 9260 and the slots on the Asus Z390-A, they appear to be different.

2. The 9260 says compatible with Bluetooth 5.1. Does this mean that adding this card will provide bluetooth connectivity?

Thanks!

While it may seem like a good idea to make things neat with adding a card to a motherboard slot, you will need to run antennas for the thing out of the case so a better idea is to use a PCIe wifi/bluetooth card or a USB one. I use this card for one of my desktops for wifi and bluetooth https://www.amazon.com/ASUS-802-11AC-Wireless-AC2100-Bluetooth-Pce-AC58BT/dp/B0713RRZMB/ref=pd_lpo_147_t_1/140-7480505-9468428?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B07P61CK87&pd_rd_r=9ea48d0a-937c-4581-98ad-3009dcbbf0db&pd_rd_w=iBygY&pd_rd_wg=1QZ3F&pf_rd_p=7b36d496-f366-4631-94d3-61b87b52511b&pf_rd_r=6GP7VBXY1H1SY6AQCJKS&refRID=6GP7VBXY1H1SY6AQCJKS&th=1
