Sadly, you likely cannot. The AC9560 card utilizes CNVio to interface with the supporting MAC in the chipset (PCH component). You cannot install non-CNVio cards, like the AX200 or AX210, into this connector. You also cannot install the CNVio2-based AX201 card as it is not compatible with the CNVio interface either. Bottom line, you are stuck with the AC9560.

Now, the AC9560 card is no slouch. It is capable of 1733 (1133+600) Mb/s on a good connection.

Hope this helps,
