    Well the Z87 Pro has the older, but still feature rich Z87 chipset. That is not necessarily a downgrade.

    Also, it has Wireless N built in, and more SATA ports, meaning you can have more hard drives for games etc.

    It is also a good overclocker, and has a better VRM cooler, meaning the power delivery will stay cooler during heavy gaming loads.

    It has slightly better onboard audio, ALC1150 vs ALC898

    The Z97 A has M.2 SSD support, but they still cost a fair bit, and also SATA express, which is not very common yet on SSDs.
  3. Z97 A is future proof, it has the new M.2 port- This is good
    Z87 Pro is wifi enabled
    ..
    Also check Z97 Pro with wifi/ac

    Please select as best answer, thanks.
