Which Z87 MOBO <$130?

This is the build: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/JFKerns/saved/1HvO

I was originally going to go with this because it was the cheapest with the combo:

But I found a couple better MOBO's that also have combo discounts and probably better features. Any opinions on these? Hard to gauge much because there's no reviews for any of them yet.

I'm thinking the Asrock might have better BIOS features, etc. Maybe more reliable? Heard really hit and miss things about Asrock customer support, but I guess when you're getting a cheaper MOBO you're running a bit of a risk. Any opinions would be greatly appreciated!

I was thinking the Asrock Extreme4 or Extreme6 Z87, but can't decide if I should step up to an MSI gaming board.
