Edit: I ordered i5 4590 cpu, Gskill Ripjaws 8GB (2x4GB) 1600 Mhz Ram, Corsair 300WR windowed case and Corsair VS650 power supply.
I'll get Gigabyte H97-D3H mobo, 250GB Samsung Evo SSD and Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo cpu cooler.
Can i control the fan speed of hyper 212 evo with this mobo?

Hi everyone. I was going to buy Gigabyte H87-HD3 mobo but Gigabyte H97-D3H is now available here. Also it has the same price with H87 one. I won't overclock so H97 mobo will be enough for me.

I'll get i5 4590 cpu, Gskill 8GB Ram, 250GB Samsung Evo SSD, Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo cpu cooler, Corsair 300R case and Corsair VS650 psu.
Mobo has 2x usb 3.0 on the front and 4x on the back. It has 7.1 channel audio, ALC1150 codec and 1 PCI Express 3.0 slot. I have a little knowledge about mobos but these features look enough for my needs.
There are Gigabyte H97-HD3 and H97-D3H on gigabyte website. There is only H97-D3H available here. What are the differences? Should i go for H97-D3H? Is it a good mobo? Thanks for your help.

Yes, it is good enough for the i5 4590, the difference between hd3 and d3h is : 1) d3h has 4X ram slot, hd3 has only 2; 2) d3h has 2x pice slot for CF, hd3 has only one.

Thanks for the advice but you compared micro atx versions. :) 
That's the right one.
For my need there is no big differences between them. I should go for H97-D3H, right?
