yea gigabyte has the same type of CPU OC profiles(from 4.2 to 4.7) as well as memory OC profiles and CPU+memory combo profiles. Their new windows mode is actually really nice, i prefer it to class mode and I didn't think i would. Some of the hardcore OCers like the classic mode, but since it will be gone in a few months id at least give windows mode a shot if you buy a GB Z87 board. It isn't more buggy or anything than classic mode, people just don't like change(i am like that too, but i like this after i change which page i land on when i enter the BIOS) You can even change the background wallpaper to one other included wallpaper, or you can load your own image, I am not a fan of that stary space background(I am not 10 or a fan of space) that is default in the UEFI, so I always change it to a more solid black one.
BTW for you guys buying at the microcenters, on Items you aren't getting a bundle deal on, like memory and ssds and such ask them to price match newegg, at mine they do. They said they only prefer doing it when they sell someone multiple items, its also not their policy to match newegg, but some stores will.
Anyways I think you will like most of the Z87 boards, honestly pick one with the features and style you like.
