For i5 13600K, RX 6900 XT, I ordered Gigabyte Z690m Aorus Elite AX DDR4 because it has WIFI+BT.
But my case is big enough Antec DP503.
Maybe worth to reorder not mATX motherboard like Z690 Gaming X DDR4 or Z690 UD DDR4 at lower price and to add WiFI card after?

I would work with what you've ordered/got. Having wireless connectivity bundled onto the board actually means having USB ports or even PCIe slots at the disposal of other devices/components. To also add, the case you currently have is good in terms of airflow and if you're not going tobe adding PCIe components to the slots on an ATX board, then perhaps think about getting a smaller, high airflow (matx)chassis?

But Z690 Gaming X DDR4 has better 16+1+2 phases vs 12+1+2 on Z690m Aorus Elite DDR4. Maybe it's better for my configuration?
