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.
