Can you give some links to what exactly you bought, because I don't get it where from and what did you buy?

Did you buy separately an adapter mini PCI-e to PCI-e?

But you can just buy both things together like this:

At the end I decided to go with this. We will see when it comes. 

Thanks Taruga for the info. 

 

i'm looking for that too but i don't understand why they have added USB connection on the pcb for bluetooth...

I didn't either in the beginning, but the idea is that bluetooth connects through USB to the motherboard and because of that, they have the data connection wires on additional connector which you connect to a header inside the case.
