This is true, as I've heard many others say about the thin PCB, this may cause some issues when installing or handling the motherboard.

So I went with the Gigabyte GA-Z87X-D3H

However, when looking at some high end boards I noticed that for supported ram there's a long list, like:

DDR3 2800(OC)/ 2600(OC)/ 2400(OC)/ 2200(OC)/ 2133(OC)/ 1866(OC)/ 1800(OC)/ 1600/ 1333/ 1066

However for the one I've just gotten, it's just one: DDR3 1600 MHz

Is this a potential issue? Am I limited in buying ram or overclocking in any way?
