With my experience with the z87 pc mate it was terrible. I made a budget build for a friend using that motherboard and I received 2 dead boards. Not sure if the z97 is any better but personally I'd look for something a little better.

Once i received a good board that actually posted it wouldn't overclock very well.

EDIT: Just looked at the reviews of the board and a lot of people are said it dead on arrival. Save the time and spend a little more on a better board it will be well worth it.
