Please recommend me a good Z87 MB

Dear experts, please recommend me a good Z87 MB with the following features:

Socket 1150
PCIe 3.0 (do not need SLI)
SATA 6Gb/s
USB 3.0 (the more the better)

My preferred brand is MSI, ASUS and Gigabyte MB as they are easily available in my country. Other special features are good to have but not required as I want to minimize cost.

    And possible the GRYPHON Z87 and DELUXE .... remembered it from this article but haven't confirmed,22260.html
  2. Most of those features are guaranteed on any Z87 motherboard. There are plenty that are ATX. Thunderbolt is what limits you. Here's the least expensive model that has it:

    However, why do you need the thunderbolt port on the motherboard? If you're using it to connect to a monitor, that will only work with your iGPU, not with the discrete video card you're probably getting since you specified PCIe 3.0. If you're connecting something else, what's wrong with getting a thunderbolt add-in card?
  3. How high do you want to OC your unlocked CPU? Since pretty much any ATX Z87 board will match your criteria above.
  4. Hi experts, I have removed thunderbolt as a must. I didn't realized that the thunderbolt is so uncommon. Also, I wont be doing any over clocking for the MB as well.
  5. Take a look at the Rocks Z87 Extreme 4, good all round mobo, will take about whatever you throw at it
  6. Then any H87 motherboard will match your needs, since you don't want to OC your CPU. I'd suggest the Gigabyte GA-H87-D3H for its great amount of connectors, along with high durable.
