The boards are not equal at all. Why such a gap?

And do u care about mATX vs. ATX size?

P8Z68-V LE - basic Z68 LGA 1155 and not really suited for high/good OC's. Inadequate Phases to CPU; ATX form factor.
Maximus IV GENE-Z - one of the best mATX Z68 LGA 1155 available if you need a small form factor PC.

Otherwise, one mentioned, either the ASUS P8Z68-V/GEN3 or ASUS P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3 are my preferred Z68's ATX with 12 Phases and proven OC'ing for SB (K) CPUs.
