Asus Z87-K (134euros)
Gigabyte GA-H61M (125euros)

    Isnt the Gigabyte ga z87x-d3h good?
  3. It is good but not as good, the UD3H would be the same class.

    Why is the z87 plus asus better?
  5. 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.
