1- I would get the ASUS Maximus VI Hero as first option, having a good audio with the ROG FX, and a lot of great features, rock solid as well.
However you are not planning on OC activities, so the hero will be overkill, the others mobos have great OC potential as well, just in case you change your mind on near future(that mobos and CPU where born just for OC), so any of them would be a good option.

2- The GigaByte GA-Z87X-UD5H would be second choice due to its endurance and quality built.

3- ASUS Sabertooth Z87 is a solid mobo, although its ability to gather dust is something I dont like at all.

4- And related to MSI mobos I have seen some reviews talking about poor QC, however those particular mobos MSI Z87-GD65-Gaming, and MSI Z87 MPower Max are really visually attractive,and has really good opinions acording to some PRO reviews:

But what about the performance of all these boards apart from the features. What about the ASUS Sabertooth Z87. Is it a performance board. I did some research and i ended up here: http://www.ocaholic.ch/modules/smartsection/item.php?it...

It shows that Asus Sabertooth is a balanced and the top performing boards of all:??: . I dont know, maybe i should'nt make decisions on one review:( . Pleaseeee help me to make a decision:pt1cable: .
