The ASRock Extreme4 is definitely a better board for the money compared to the D3H. If you are recommending a UD3H then that would be the ASRock Extreme6 equivalent. I think the Extreme4 packs more features than the D3H.

Also, if I was spending about $30 on an Air Cooler I would spend a little more and get a Phanteks PH-TC12DX which performs decent amount better than the Silverstone.

I have to dissagree. There is no point in spedning much money on a Z87 board unless you are going for extreme overclocks. The asrock boards do not have as good quality VRM's as the gigabyte board. Even though asrock claim that their boards have a digital PWM, that is not true. From what i have seen, the gigabyte boards seem to be easier to overclock with aswell.

As for the cooler, the results i have seen shows that the silverstone cooler is within a few degrees of the phanteks cooler.

Most air coolers are within a few degrees of each other, but 4-7 degrees is a big difference. The only problem with ASRock motherboards was that on their Z77 Extreme4 they used Dpack Mosfets, which could cause problems with high overclocks. ASRock has the cleanest and most user friendly UEFI Bios around, I severely doubt it would be easier to overclock on a Gigabyte motherboard. Lastly, the Extreme4 is a pretty inexpensive board, even the Extreme6 is a pretty inexpensive board in comparison to some of the other boards. They are not boards you would consider spending "much money" on since both are under $170. It is just that boards in the same price range from other companies do not supply nearly as much features as the ASRock's do for the money.
