I did some researches on the MBs, and you should get the Z87-OC.

Because i7-4770K can be OC to 5.0GHz with low voltage, and there are 4 X PCI-EXpress x16 lanes even most of us don't use more than 2. Also don't count on the reviews from newegg's user. If you buy from newegg.com, you only pay $10 more.

I add one of them review, you can find more. http://www.eteknix.com/gigabyte-z87x-oc-z87-motherboard...

I wouldn't worry about newegg so much. Most people who comment are those unhappy with their boards as opposed to those that are. The UD4 wouldn't be too bad of a choice here though.

I think the Z87X-OC is the better option. If you have a very extreme cooling solution , you can OC a K CPU to the extreme like 5 GHz. If you wont OC at all , get the UD4H which has basic features.
If anyone's answer/solution helps you , please select it as the solution for your thread.

Thanks for the help picking, i am going with the UD4H because i won't be watercooling anyday. Also i asked the question because the Z87-OC had a combo deal on newegg for 40$ with the i5. But the with the in-store pickup for 30$ less and the board being cheaper i will save more more money with the UD4H. Thanks

Thanks for the best answer , and yeah , The UD4H then is better , and it can OC too , just add a good air or water cooler whenever you feel its time to OC.
