though the msi Mpowers were pretty interesting that's mostly due to their ridiculous amount of powerphases.

As far as I am concerned the oc formula is the smartest z87 mobo selection. only similar boards are in the 400$ range. at 300 this is a steal! believe me I'd already have it if I hadn't decided to hold off a month for when theres more money lying around... its close between this and asus impact I want to convert my old toaster oven into a pc

Yes I agree for gaming or running benchmarks You can not beat the OC formula at the price it is. As a matter of fact add a 100 to the cost and it would still be reasonable I think.

That is the motherboard I am going to order to play with bench and abuse!!
