    Compared to ASUS P8Z68-V LX no DVI and VGA , outdated BIOS and a cheap looking colour scheme. Check my quick unboxing of ASUS one if interested:

    As a purely personal preference, we prefer the fan headers to be near the edge of the board rather than the middle, per the 'D3.
    I recently had the misfortune of trying to shoehorn an H60 next to a motherboard with fan headers and numerous other obstructions at the edges. The case was a decent size, with two 120mm fan spacings at the top, and a further one at the back, but the motherboard was too close to the top and in one of the top fan positions, the RAM slots were fouling the HSF; in the other, it was the CPU fan header and CPU power cables (and MOSFET heatsink); and at the back, the fan spacings didn't match up or something like that. I ended up drilling a hole through the top of the case and attaching the fan on the outside of the case it was ridiculous.
