The ASRock Z77E-ITX comes with one PCI Express 3.0 x16 slot and two Mini PCI Express slots. The Mini PCI Express slot located on the component side of the motherboard comes with a Wi-Fi card installed. The one located on the solder side of the printed circuit board is actually an mSATA connector, which supports only the installation of SSDs using this form factor. The mSATA slot is connected to one of the SATA-300 ports controlled by the chipset.
