Maximus VI Impact is by far the best one. These two are about the same...

The H87 chipset does not overclock.
Only the Z87 based boards do.

Get the Asrock, its cheaper than the Z87I-Deluxe (this is the asus itx board) and is just as good wink.gif

ASRock Z87 ITX and Asus Z87I Deluxe are both nice boards. Asrock will be cheaper then asus and the Impact will be most expensive and will have different features. Check them out


I am going with Asus Z87I-Deluxe because I loved the Z77-I deluxe

Depends on how much you want to spend.

If price is not a consideration

1. Asus RoG Maximus VI Impact
2. Asrock Z87E ITX
3. Asus Z87I-Deluxe

The Maximus VI Impact will be pricey. Likely between $250 to $300 USD. Where as the Asrock Z87E-ITX and Asus Z87I-Deluxe will be around $150-$175.

The Maxmimus VI Impact is by far the best, but are the additional features worth the added cost you?

Personally I'll be buying the Maximus VI Impact. Hopefully NGFF SSDs start hitting retail channels soon. However If I had to choose between the two next best itx boards, I'd take the Asrock Z87E-ITX over the Asus Z87I-Deluxe because it for sure has msata, and possibly better audio, and will likely be cheaper.

What you buy also depends on when you want to buy. Right now the only Z87 itx board thats attainable is the Asrock. The Asus Z87I-Deluxe should be hitting retail channels any day. Where as the Maximus VI Impact will not be hitting retail until sometime in July.
