AsRock Z87 Extreme 6 is the one I got (need dang wifi though, any recommended wifi would be great if I keep this board

Your Motherboard is fine, save yourself the trouble and money of the RMA and keep it. When you are looking at the same dollar figure for motherboards the features and phase control are going to most likely be identical. From there it is all about what kind of BIOS lay out you are most comfortable with, I personally prefer ASUS and Gigabyte, but MSI and AsRock are solid companies as well.

I just picked up the Z87-Pro / i7-4670K combo deal from the egg yesterday ... coolsmiley02.gif
... & last week I started a Z87 Expert / i7-4770K build --- which unfortunately was not offered as a combo deal ...

I went with the ASUS Z87 board(s) because I've always had great results from previous ASUS builds (Z68 / X79) ...
... & that I'm a big fan of USB Bios Flashback from my MIVE-Z & RIVE rigs ...

Best of luck with your new Z87 build - with whichever board you choose ... thumb.gif
