Hello, im in need of a Z87 motherboard for my new build coming up.

Been thinking of:
Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD5H,
Gigabyte GA-Z87X-OC
MSI Z87-GD65 Gaming
ASUS Z87-DELUXE
ASUS SABERTOOTH Z87
MSI Z87 MPOWER MAX

Gonna have a 4770K CPU on it, i also wonder what kind of volt does the ram need to be? Is it still 1,5?

My other upcoming components are gonna be:
Nvidia GTX 770
Corsair AX860
2x Samsung 120GB's SSD

If not in a hurry, I suggest waiting 2-3 months for some reviews/ users feedback, BIOS revisions.
Or you'd like to be among the firsts testing the new systems?
Yes, 1.5V, 1.35V are OK.

Pretty much in a hurry, cannot wait so long.

I would go with a Z87 Deluxe (it's like choosing blindfolded).

Are those watercooling nipples for optional use, or do i have to use em?

June 1, 2013 5:44:06 PM

my guess is its optional but u have to make sure , i would know if they sold it here or if anyone reviewed that part before but couldnt find anything on it

Found out that it was optional.
The asus Deluxe board really looks ugly.

So my final choices are between
ASRock Z87 OC Formula
MSI Z87 MPOWER
ASUS SABERTOOTH Z87
ASUS MAXIMUS VI HERO

ok so question whats the /ac option?

The nipples are simply covered, you shouldnt really use them even with watercooling.

I am pretty certain it is their way of saying it has a wifi card and is 802.11ac .
