My review may be a little biased here because I practically stole the motherboard. It was on sale for $90ish and then there was a $30 rebate on it. Before that brief window of opportunity I was considering an h81 and the like. The only complaint I have about this board is that my GPU (Gigabyte r9 280 windforce) blocks the PCI x1 slot which I would've liked to have been able to use. Other than that it has all the features I could ever need from a board
This thing is a thing of beauty. The UEFI bios is very in depth, has all the features I could ever want, and is well thought out with placement of everything. There are more fan headers than most mATX chassis can utilize and it has plenty of sata connections. There are plenty of USB 3.0 headers and the io shield has an exhaust hole for heat to escape. I went with z87 over z97 because the additional changes were minor and I got a killer deal on a new one of these.
