Hi guys, thanks for responding, your input is always appreciated!
I'm looking for a Z87 motherboard which includes on board WIFI, a SPDIF I/O port for digital HD audio, 8 pin supplemental CPU power,
Gigabit Ethernet (preferably Intel), PCIe 3.0, a PCIe x1 slot above the first PCIe x16 slot, actual heat sinks on the VRM, on board USB 3.0 header, at least 2 SATA III 6.0 GB/s connectors,
diagnostic on board display, and follows one of these three color schemes: white & blue, black and green, or black and orange/red.
This is for a build that will have a beefy CPU in it, at first using the iGPU, then upgrading to a beefy dedicated GPU later when it can be afforded.
There will be orange involved as I am using a full copper heat sink on the CPU.
