    Z87 Motherboards

    So many to choose from!
    Personally I'm most tempted by the Gryphon or the Maximus Gene, but will have to wait on actual prices and reviews.

    The OC Formula looks pretty cool, and it has an LCD screen!

    Currently own a Asus P5Q Deluxe, and I wouldn't hesitate to buy the Z87 Deluxe from Asus if I was to go Haswell.

    Re: Z87 Motherboards

    I would like an overclocking function. Im a fps hunter, so this system will only be used for gaming.

    Your advice would be much appreciated

    Re: Z87 Motherboards

    In terms of layout the ASRock Z87E-ITX is better than the gigabyte, the 6 phase VRM looks better as well, over the 4 phase gigabyte, looks like ASRock are using the very good panasonic flat SP capacitors


    Although the ASUS Z87-ITX is also looking good

    With the VRM on a daughter board
