It is good but not as good, the UD3H would be the same class.

Apart from me liking Asus more it is a class above but there is very little difference 2 more SATA ports and often there are quality differences in the PCB when you step up a class, comparable Asus board to the D3H would be the Z87-A which I did not see on your list and is the board I would buy today if upgrading. Both boards have 8 power phases so overclock potential is similar.
