Motherboard Selection for Z87

Which motherboard is best:
Gigabyte Z87X-D3H, Asus Z87-A, AsRock Z87-Extreme4, MSI Z87-G45-Gaming.
In my area, all have the same price and I can't decide which one to get. My CPU will be the 4670k and I will have a moderate overclock.

    Is the H100i a good enough cooler?
  5. Drop to the 75$ Noctua NH U14s with better cooling performance and lower noise and from the 25$ saved, get a better motherboard, like the MSI Z87 GD65 Gaming. Doing that will increase your maximum expect-able core clock. NH U14S review : http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Noctua/NH-U14S/6.html

    is there a real difference in gaming performance between the GD45 and the GD65 ?
  8. Yes, passively, since you can OC your CPU higher using the GD65 than the G45. Gaming-related features between the 2 boards are identical.
